If you're like us, you try to NOT put candy in your child's/children's Easter baskets, but small toys and books instead. Girls are always super easy- there are always small items like lip gloss, nail polish and jewelry to put in eggs.
But what about the boys? How about a super kids book that stirs the imagination and is educational at the same time?
We were recently sent Bob Logan’s Rocket Town to review. Even though it is aimed at boys, Kiddo adores the book and loves to look at it over and over!
The book tells the story of an astronaut and his canine companion, as they drive an old pickup through Rocket Town—an amazing town filled with rockets! Each colorful spread sports an eye-catching array of rockets, from big to small, fast to slow, practical to extremely silly! Along the way you can count rockets, find shapes and count rockets of different colors! AHA- educational and fun!
Kiddo really liked the ice cream rocket, school bus rocket, and the shark rocket! But her favorite was the final rocket (shhh....it's a surprise!). She loved the final pages, as well, as they are a countdown to it's blastoff, that echoes her favorite song (STILL!) from Vacation Bible School last year ("Blast Off") .
The book is aimed at children ages 1 – 5, primarily boys, but girls will like it too! The book is sure to delight parents as well, with it's bright retro-pop illustrations and fun text!
If you're looking for some more items for your kids' Easter basket(s), make sure to add this book!
