Review by: Stephanotis
Carole P. Roman travels to the stars, orbiting the moon and rocketing past planets in this adorable journey to the far reaches of the galaxy. A beautiful bedtime poem, this verse is sure to delight any child before they go to sleep.
It’s been a long time since I’ve read a children’s picture book and happy to report that Rocket-Bye reminded me of the special quality that only this type of book offers.
It’s a cute story about two children who take a rocket to explore space and conclude their evening safely tucked up in bed. While it’s short on words, each one conveys their journey through the universe perfectly. The book is beautifully illustrated by Mateya Arkova and has you smiling as you turn each page.
I think this is the perfect book to not only teach young children about all the planets but makes for wonderful bedtime story to read to your children or grandchildren.
