    Kids love rockets and space and this is a great book that shows how the rockets are prepared for launch The colors and illustrations are simple yet fun and kids will enjoy the countdown to liftoff.This is a great book that works on counting but instead of counting up this book counts down which is a nice change for kids Another thing kids can do with this book is find the hidden numbers throughout the pages This is a great book for toddlers to enjoy.
