Where is the rocket? by Harriet Ziefert; illustrated by Barroux

Mmmmm, prepositions, such a yummy word. And this book is veritable explosion of them.

A rocket ship blasts off into space and with it teaches all sorts of lovely concepts like outside and inside with the help of a cute small person in a crown.

“down… and on the right. What’s on your right?”

My blog is all about picture books to share with an audience, rather than one-on-one. At times this causes me a bit of head-scratching, as it has today.

I think this one will work with an audience of the small-ones. There’s not a lot of text, but there are lots of questions that you could ask your audience along the way to keep things entertaining.

Let me know how you get on.

Check out Where is the rocket? at Auckland Libraries.

Or buy Where is the rocket? from Fishpond.
