Rocket is a little girl who loves space, and looks up at the stars with her telescope every night. Rocket dreams of being an astronaut just like Mae Jemison. She is very excited to view an upcoming meteor shower. Rocket goes around town telling all of her friends facts about meteor showers. Her brother then takes her home, and rocket prepares for the shower that night. Later, rocket finds out that half the people she spoke with earlier that day show up at her door excited for the meteor shower. They all begin to make their way to the park. After waiting and waiting, folks begin to leave and rocket looses hope that the shower will still happen. Her brother puts down his phone and reassures her. At that moment the meteor shower begins, and they all look up at the stars together. Rocket proclaims that one day she will have a meteor shower named after herself.
Throughout the book, Rocket gives us plenty of factual information of space and past space travel. We also see how a group of people prepare to view a meteor shower. I like how this book shows a young, black female as the protagonist interested in space. Rocket is a perfect example of how anyone can love space, and aspire to work in the stem field. This would pair well with a science lesson on meteor showers or space in general. This is a good science book for kindergarten-second grade readers. ( )

Young would-be astronomer Rocket looks forward to the upcoming Phoenix Meteor Shower in this charming new picture book from British actor Nathan Bryon. Practically beside herself with excitement, she invites everyone in the neighborhood to join her at the local park on the evening in question. The only person who remains indifferent is her elder brother Jamal. Or does he? When it seems as if the meteor shower is a bust, he proves he has observed a few things, when not looking at his phone...

I'm not always that enthusiastic for celebrity-authored children's books. Too often, I feel that the authors of such books get a free pass because of their fame, producing work more notable for its creator's name, than for any quality inherent to it. That said, I found the story in Rocket Says Look Up! quite endearing, appreciating both the eponymous heroine's enthusiasm for astronomy, and the heartwarming conclusion in which Jamal's better nature reveals itself. The artwork from Dapo Adeola is cute, although I did find Rocket's glasses a little bit... much. Of course, I'm sure that they were a deliberate choice, and were meant to be endearingly geeky, but somehow my gaze was always being drawn to those round spectacles, making them more of a distraction than anything else. Leaving that one quibble aside, I found this a sweet, heartwarming little picture-book, one I would recommend to all young star-gazers and would-be astronomers. ( )
