Rocket: launch + giveaway

It's here!
Mars, rockets, robots, and adventure—all in a space-age nursery rhyme retelling of “The house that Jack built.”

As a family, we've been reading rocket books, watching the Space X rocket launches, and talking about rockets incessantly, besides creating many, many pictures for this book. I'm excited to share it with you now!

This week, I’m giving away 3 hardcover copies of The Rocket that Flew to Mars. I hope you will enter, and I hope you enjoy the story!

P.S. If you're excited about The Rocket too, would you mind helping me by telling someone about my book or sharing this post?

Oh, and yeah, I’m way behind on some things—but The Rocket that Flew to Mars is ready to launch!
I’ll be back Monday with a giveaway and more about th…
