A space adventure for little ones, with vivid images and lovely rhymes; it is a delight to read with kids. The adventure of a little boy and all the wonderful places he visits in his rocket ship. This picture book tells the story of a boy who zooms off in a rainbow colored rocket ship and finds awesome adventures, aliens and fun along the way.
The words and phrases chosen by the author add to the charm of the book. The bright colors are resplendent as they jump out of the pages. The only one thing that I found a bit off were the faces in the book. I felt they could be a little softer but overall the pictures were great.
I read this book with my 6 year old and he was very happy with the story and the funny aliens of different planets and colors. Racing, exploring and a riot of colors – this book has it all. He wanted to know all the details and loved the explanations. An added benefit was learning about the planets in a fun way. We were very impressed with the simple fun language and poetry.
It has all the elements to make it a perfect bedtime read and encourage the little ones to sleep as they finish their adventure with Zwoosh.
Read this book to your child and see their imagination take flight. A vivid, vibrant and vivacious read with a wonderful voyage.
Zwoosh on Kindle is now on sale for $1.99!!
