When night has come and the moon shines bright,

Reflecting back our sun’s great light—

Explore the stars and search the sky,

And watch for satellites gliding by!

Ride a rocket to the stars as astronauts go zooming, booming, flying, and guiding their way through the solar system. Watch as they make moon landings, explore a new terrain, repair a satellite, and more in this exciting early introduction to all things outer space! A rhythmic, rollicking text pairs with bold, bright illustrations to capture the imaginations of young space explorers everywhere.
