When stars begin to twinkle in the night sky, it's time for an outer-space lullaby. A perfect bedtime read to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing!

Rocket-bye, Baby, up to the moon.
Nighttime is falling; sleep will come soon.
We'll climb in the spaceship and that's where we'll stay,
snuggled up close as we're carried away. . . .

Join a mother and her baby as they fly in their own little rocket through a star-filled night sky, past constellations and meteor showers, in this dreamy good-night book. A gentle rhyme and beautiful artwork of stars and planets and mother and child make this a perfect good-night book when the stars come out.
