Summary
Blast off for rockets This colorful celebration will satisfy burgeoning astronauts with a survey of rocket planes and spacecrafts. From a Fourth of July firework rocket to the space shuttle "Columbia "to the rocket that landed men on the moon, rich paintings compare and contrast various types of these remarkable fire-powered flying machines. The simple text and pictures can be enjoyed by the youngest preschool enthusiast, while also appealing to older children who can read by themselves. In-depth endpapers showcase specific models and also detail the famous Apollo space mission.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "PreS-Gr. 2. Kids who are space crazy will pore over the many different rockets that fill the horizontal pages of this compact picture book. Using a format similar to that of This Plane (2000) and This Boat (2004), Collicutt gives each rocket or spacecraft one line of description under an intriguing, brightly colored picture. Some rockets travel by day, and some by night. A rocket can be carried under a plane or on top of a truck. Occasionally the text isn't clear. For instance, is the rocket that's like a train actually a bullet train? If not, what is it? The front matter, a two-page spread picturing and naming some particular rockets, might have been used to amplify some of the more generic rockets in the text. The back matter is an intriguing two-page spread of the Apollo 11 Mission, focusing on the rocketry system. This spans a fairly wide age range, with more to look at and learn as the reader grows older. --Ilene Cooper Copyright 2005 Booklist"
