A Level 2 Beginning to Read Alone DK reader, “Rocket Rescue” is an easy-to-read tale based on a LEGO kit. BB wins a chance to become a Space Port astronaut and soon he is lifting off, on his way to adventure.

The colorful illustrations, perfect for the text, are inspired by the LEGO kit on which the story is based. In addition, photographs, with accompanying explanations, from NASA are included. These special information blocks discuss astronauts, suits, EVAs, meteors, space travelers, training machines, liftoff, and traveling to the moon. Accompanying the information blocks, a special “Great Space Facts” section follows the story; both aid in strengthening the young reader’s learning and understanding of space science. It’s a perfect book for science education or for youngsters interested in space exploration or LEGO stories.

Highly recommended. ( )

Rocket Rescue is a fun look at space travels. This is a great book for children 1-2nd grade learning to read independently. The illustrations are Lego characters, on some pages there are realistic pictures with captions giving us actual facts explaining the fiction line. This book is sponsored by the Lego people for those who are not interested in the commercial story line. A separate Lego kit could be purchased of these characters. The children can use the Legos to reenact for imaginary play.
