Bedtime goes out of this world with Hush, Little Rocket, a new picture book by New York Times-bestselling author Mo O’Hara!
Hush, Little Rocket, don’t make a bleep.
We’re heading home now, it’s time to sleep.
At the end of a very long day soaring around the galaxy, send your little rocket to sleep with this celestial lullaby sung to the tune of “Hush Little Baby.” Starting at the long, yellow flares of the sun and coming home to a launchpad on Neptune’s largest moon, this gentle bedtime flight will introduce readers to the solar system while lulling them into a slumber full of cosmic dreams. Sweeping illustrations by Alexandra Cook bring the Milky Way to life, and backmatter provides more planetary facts for your curious stargazer. Perfect for tiny astronauts!
Cosmic couplets riff on the classic lullaby "Hush, Little Baby" to usher a little round-nosed rocket off to sleep in this bedtime book. After a day "swishing past stars in the Milky Way," a small, smiling rocket and a larger spacecraft zip past planets and moons, until arrival home launches a bedtime routine consisting of windscreen brushing and a gentle nose rub. Planetary smiles greet the youthful vessel as it voyages through iridescent skyscapes in Cook's striated illustrations. O'Hara lightly inserts facts throughout, and more in back matter, referencing Mars's blue sunsets and Uranus's tilted axis. Space-themed dreams are sure to ensue. Ages 1–4.
