Rocket Says Look UpRocket Says Look Up! by Nathan Bryan; illustrated by Dapo Adeola. 2019. Published by Random House.

Brief summary: A young girl’s enthusiasm of seeing a meteor shower that night spreads to others in the neighborhood. As night comes, Rocket(named after a rocket that was shot into space the day she was born) goes to the park with her brother who is always looking down on his phone. He turns his phone off and looks up to see the meteor shower dart across the sky. The two share the moment with each other while drinking hot chocolate.

Comments: I thought this would be a good book of introduction for the primary students about the sky. The Farmers Almanac site has a schedule of meteor showers. Wouldn’t it be fun  to send home a note in December or winter break for the students to think of each other while looking up at the sky for a scheduled meteor shower on Dec. 13/14 or Dec. 22?
