We love to read. My sons both enjoy books, though my older son loves to read more than my younger son. Rocket Town by Bob Logan showing up on our doorstep was a hit for both of my boys. My youngest (20MO) needs board books and he is captivated by the pictures for the color contrasts; my oldest (4YO) just loves to read and is captivated by the pictures because THEY’RE ROCKETS!
In addition to early reading, Rocket Town offers education in opposites and numbers. They compare big and small, up and down, fast and slow, and count down for BLAST OFF! In fact, with a couple of readings to my 4YO he can now read it to my 20MO who is demanding to have Rocket Town read to him several times … in a row!
So now with my 4YO armed, he can “read” (okay, actually recall) the entire book when mommy is not available. But I really like Rocket Town too. I have looked through the book on my own several times, not just because I have to review it, but because I want take in the colors and pictures myself. Bob Logan has worked as a story artist on feature animations such as Madagascar, Open Season, and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Look at the eye-catching pictures of Bob Logan’s Rocket Town:
I would highly recommend Rocket Town as a baby shower gift, birthday present, new reading selection for you library, etc. The book follows an astronaut and his puppy pal in their yellow pick-up truck rocket. (Can you spy them in the picture above?) Your kids will love this book!
Rocket Town is a new board book and was just released to the public this month! This new board book cost $7.99 (USD) and is offered through Sourcebooks, the publisher, and other retailers. Sourcebooks and Bob Logan also offer The Sea of Bath if you’re interested in other books from the duo.
