"Children of all ages will love this space themed story featuring two kids on a surreal journey through space. They travel through the stars and see the milky war, the stars and the planets. Roman identifies the sights by name: the Milky way, the planets: Venus, Saturn, Mars, constellations such as Leo the lion as well as stars- Polaris and Rigel. This is a wonderful experience for children of all ages. The details add to the richness of this story." - Lemon Bee Blogspot
"A dreamy bedtime story*, Rocket-Bye* is a fun rhyming picture book with ethereal illustrations to engage young children... Children from toddler age to mid-grade school age are sure to enjoy this calming, quiet bedtime story and will dream of the outer space adventures of Rocket-Bye." - Beth Vanhouten, Foreword Reviews
"Rocket-Bye is... the latest and greatest picture books from award-winning author, Carole P. Roman... Just as a child goes through many stages of unwinding before they fall asleep... Rocket-Bye is perfect to help young explorers and budding astronomers... This book will be loved by many - all the way to the moon and back!" - Bianca Schulze, The Children's Book Review
"Veteran author Roman sends readers on a rhyming voyage through the Milky Way, accompanied by Arkova's whimsical illustrations. ...Roman's words paint as vibrant a picture as Arkova's gorgeous swirls of pinks and blues... The book's poetry scans well and rolls off the tongue without too much stumbling... The two siblings are wonderfully gender-ambiguous, so readers can imagine themselves as either the older, dark-haired sibling or the younger, blond child without hindrance. ...The illustration and comforting language at the end of the book should have lap readers ready to head to their own rocket beds to drift off to sleep.A read-aloud lullaby with dreamy pictures, perfect for sending budding astronauts to slumber." - Kirkus Reviews

I hope you enjoyed this review. If you have any questions about my experience please leave me a comment. I will be happy to follow up on my experience with this product.
I received this product complimentary from Chelshire, Inc. for quality testing purposes; all opinions expressed are my own.
I have a 2 year old Niece that has really gotten interested in books especially books with pictures. She loves to have stories read to her and sometimes she wants to be a big girl and read it herself. Watching her run her finger over the words and babble is so cute. I've bought many books for her but have always let her take them home so now I need a few to keep here for her for when I babysit. This is such a great book and takes the reader on a journey thru space. Siblings take a ride on a rocket exploring the moon answer stars and planets. When the story ends the children are in their beds. The illustrations are just as wonderful as the book.
“Rocket-Bye” by Carole P Roman is bedtime poem that will take your child on a gentle adventure throughout the solar system.
“Rocket-Bye” is a calming bedtime story written in poem that lets your child explore the galaxy from the comfort of home. I love the soft images that go with the story. The colours are calming, making it perfect for bedtime.
The book is perfect for young readers with just a line or two of text on each page. I love that my daughter can read it herself at bedtime. The story is simple but opens up such a whole new world to young children.
My children loved to explore pages with the constellation illustrations. They are amazed by the night sky, and this gave us another opportunity to explore the sky with a little bit of help from “Rocket-Bye” and google. The author mentions the stars Polaris, Castor and Rigel in the book my children were intrigued because they recognized the constellations from illustrations, but they wanted to know which stars belonged with which constellation. It was fun to discover new constellations that we didn’t know existed as well as learn more about the ones we see in the sky each night.
Although it probably wasn’t the books intention, it raised all kinds of questions about the stars and planets. Is Pluto a planet? Why was it downgraded? Could there be life on Venus? And so many other questions, many of which I couldn’t answer and we’ve been researching since. I love books that challenge my children to explore the world around them. Our next stop is to the library to find more books about the stars.
I love how this book encourages your little ones to imagine all the places they could go on their own Rocket ship. Would they fly to the moon, or keep on going? I love the conversation that follows about all the things they would see and do. It’s not long before they are drifting off to sleep and start to dream about far off places they will visit.
*Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of “Rocket-Bye” in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% my own.
The pictures are beautifully done as Illustrated by Mateya Arkova. Kudos for choosing brilliant colors to brighten our day and done in such a way that we seem to be flying! Way Cool! And Carole Roman has taken time to write lovely poetic rhymes that are swirled into the air as if the words are following us in the rocket! I loved this creative, all-together attention-getting storybook. Kids will too!
Carole has created a round-the-world space trip with her lively words like "romp past Venus" or "catch a glimpse of Mars's red glow." She even tells us to dance a jig on somebody's tail and then wave at Leo the lion...Really, if I didn't have the illustrations to follow, I'd be totally lost finding my way! Moving on to other planets is great and we even got to ride the rings of Saturn...
Because of the subject--learning about our heavens--this book is surely of interest to all children, but the pictures are aimed for the younger child who is excitedly playing with the rocket ship and then heading to bed when back home... This is a delightful book that promises to get your child involved with the pictures and later when he/she can read! My recommendation would be for the paperback to keep in your children's library or a ebook in color... Highly recommended to all!
