    1. The rhyming and art in this one makes for a good storytime read. Will tie in nicely with the song "Zoom, zoom, zoom, I'm going to the moon!"

    2. Rockets have a lot of cache in my house. Because they are a form of transportation, yes, but also because they are rather mysterious, as I am not sure what parts of space travel are really comprehensible to my 2 year old. But mystery or no, he really loves this book. I like it, too. The text is simple and charming, just short rhyming lines about the various stages of space flight. The pictures are big and colorful.

    3. I love Dan Yaccarino -- his images are always really charming and bright. This book was a good one to use with the rhyme that it comes from ("Zoom, Zoom, Zoom -- we're going to the moon. Zoom, zoom, zoom, we'll be there very soon. In 5, 4, 3, 2 ,1BLAT OFF!"). We started with that and then read the story together, and even did some actions (putting on our space boots, etc.). He never disappoints!

    4. Rhyming story about a kid who pretends he visits the moon. Good for kindergarten - age appropriate space story with warm and curved line illustrations.Kids will likely ask about the pictures (why's the rocket falling apart? Are they sinking in water? etc) because while the text is simple, the illustrations show details of his adventure. But hey, now seems like a good time to start telling your kid about space.

    6. This is a favorite with my kindergarten students. I shared it as we finished a transportation theme and moved into a study of space. The kids chose it over and over again during their personal reading time. They enjoyed the catchy rhyming text and the bright illustrations. They made pictures of themselves as astronauts which we tethered to a giant space ship creating a wall mural.

It is a large book with short pages, which make this a good book for toddler storytime (or a storytime about astronauts or outer space).
