I really loved the message in this book about facing your fears and trying things you want to do. Zippy Bunny wants loves outer space, but when their town is running a space camp, she won't sign up because she is scared that she won't be as good as the bigger kids. She eventually faces her fear and signs up after being encouraged by her family. All through camp she is worried and scared, but she is successful in building her rocket.
My grandson liked this story, but was more excited about space camp than the idea that Zippy faced her fears. His dad went to space camp when he was a kid, so we talked a bit about that. I encouraged some discussion about what he was afraid of and how he could face those worried and fears. He decided doing things with friends, his sister or maybe his parents would help. The pictures were really sweet and complemented the story nicely. My granddaughter liked the story because she liked the bunnies and she liked that she made a rocket. She wanted to get out the craft stuff and see if she could make a rocket when we finished. A great story for families, schools, preschools and public libraries.
