Zoom, Rocket, Zoom!

"Zoom, Rocket, Zoom!" by Margaret Mayo, 2011

This picture book is filled with descriptive words about all things space related. Lunar modules, space walking, moon buggies, space shuttles, space stations, satellites, robot rovers and much more are described in a fun and exciting manner with sound effects too!

"Smart astronauts are good at guide, guide, guiding, at the controls, watching and waiting. Then-pow! --booster rocket firing. Traveling deep in space."

This is a great introductory book on space for preschool and kindergarten age children. Read this book on a summer night when you know there will be a clear, star-filled night sky. Look at the stars and the moon with your child and imagine what goes on up there in outer space and what it would be like to explore it.
