My 4-year-old son reviews Zoom, Rocket, Zoom!
5, 4, 3… liftoff! It says, “Whoo-oom!”
The astronauts are flying in the rocket ship. They’re in orange shirts. And they have space helmets on, and one is dark-skinned, and one is light-skinned. And there’s two seats, even cords, even channels to see how fast they go.
Lunar landers–they shoot flying out on the side to get it landing. And one big one on the bottom, one big spike, two big spike, three big spike, four big spike, five big spike, six big spike, seven big spike. And three on one of the shooters.
The earth’s right by kind of a circle of stars, and the lunar lander is right by this astronaut that’s going “Byoo!” He’s not really saying something; that’s just how he’s flying. “Byoo!” means he’s going, like jumping. This astronaut is digging, even working in space. Even there’s 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 bumps here and 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 16… 16 lumps over here!
“Moon buggies are good at roll, roll, rolling,” as they travel in space. Space rockets are good at–bam!–flying.
Rocket ships are good for playing, eating, and typing, and sleeping and good for “weightless somersaulting.” [laughs] That’s so funny!
Astronauts are “good at space walking… almost dancing.” Space satellites fly around in circles, around planets.
There’s wheels, some lumps… and the stars. And the machine driving around on the Mars.
The moon buggy’s rolling around, and it’s right by the lunar lander.
This book is good because it has astronauts in it, and every age should read it… even grown ups. Every, every, every person. Even you!
