 REVIEW
 Another great children's book by author, Carole P. Roman.  This book is a sweet little bedtime poem that will send your little ones asleep with the stars shining on them.  It's about a rocket ride that two children take off through the universe and brings them back to the safety of their own beds. Mateya Arkova did a wonderful job of illustrating the poem.  The colors are vivid and the poem is a learning lesson, even though the child may not know it, about outer space. It is geared for children 3-5 years of age but I enjoyed it too.  For the young and young at  heart.The verse is in white print on the darker background.  I wish the print had been a little larger, still in white, but larger. This is a sweet poem for that bedtime story.  Let  your little ones drift off to sleep and dream of being on the rocket ship and soaring among the clouds. 
 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Carole P. Roman in exchange for my unbiased review. No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
