Rocket Says Look Up!
About this deal
It just isn't the best story I've ever read and it also does not have a moral message that makes you want to pick it up every night. The book contains interesting facts about space and astronauts that children would find interesting and would open up the potential for brilliant science discussions among the class. Just when she is about to give up, the meteor shower begins and everyone, including Jamal, looks up!

Perfect for children excited by what happens in the night skies, and the possibilities of looking up and around, rather than down (at a mobile/cell phone).Ideal for space or science-inclined readers, this book includes brief information about outstanding scientist Jemison and a short list of facts about meteors and comets enclosed in an embrace of family relationships and a child’s joy in the world around her. Surely Jamal could have checked up on his phone exactly what time the shower was due and still experience the event together? And when Jamal gets too into his gaming to take Rocket to the park to watch the meteor shower, what will she do?

Bryon’s story brightly conveys Rocket’s space obsession alongside day-to-day hopes and familial tensions; the title also weaves in a message that not just STEM, but also screen-free time, can help one aim for the stars.Perhaps that's what he does in his unpublished work, but there's no challenge here, except to guess which computer software he uses to create utterly ho-hum art like this. He’s a rising star in the world of screenwriting and has an animated series, Afro Kid, currently under option in England. Rocket decides to bring the whole neighborhood together to watch a meteor shower and, in the end, people realize the importance of looking up!
