Rocket-Bye by Carole P Roman Review


Rocket-Bye is an out of this world rhyming story perfect for children’s bedtime reading!

Carole P. Roman is an award-winning author of the Captain No Beard and If You Were Me and Lived In… series of children’s books and I am always delighted to read her books. So when I received Rocket-Bye I couldn’t wait to get started along with the 3 year old twins I was going to read it with.

Rocket-Bye is about two young boys (the author’s grandchildren) who once bedtime arrives their journey to the stars and beyond begins on a rocket ship.

Rocket-Bye is not a traditional story picture book but a book written in rhyming verse about 2 young boys who travel into space and throughout the galaxy looking at the moons, stars and planets all while asleep… he is of course having a wonderful dream. All told in short verses it makes a great book for bedtime reading.

Illustrated by Mateya Arkova in bright pastel colours and with a cartoon style with blurred edges to fit in with the dream theme, it captures the imagination and looks great.

Not only is it a great short book perfect for bedtimes, it also has some educational value by introducing children to planet names, star constellations and not being afraid.

A perfect outer space story that is out of this world and one that children will love reading (and being read to) while admiring the beautiful illustrations and the rhyming verse makes it a perfect and gentle tale for bedtime reading.
