Rocket Out of the Park

By Andrea Cascardi
Illustrated by The Jim Henson Company

It’s time for Dot and her friends to build rockets at the Creative Fair, where the sky’s the limit for ingenuity.

Dot is at the Creative Fair, where everyone’s excited about making fizz-powered rockets. “Make your rocket ship your own!” says Dot’s mom. Dot is keen on making the fastest rocket of them all, with no decorations to weigh it down. When it’s time for lift-off, Dot’s rocket soars out of sight, while Ruby’s snows down glitter, Nev and Dev’s sprays out shaving cream, and Hal’s makes a huge noise. Everyone’s rockets are totally different, and it turns out they’re all the best!

  • One of two readers on this list that kick off a new tie-in series based on Universal Kids’ (formerly known as Sprout) television show Dot.
  • In this book, Dot’s mom is running a rocket-making booth for kids at the local Makers’ Faire. She’s a techie and app developer—an all-around fantastic role model for girls in science.
  • Amidst the ever-heightening debate around screen time for kids, the DOT series advocates for the benefits of technology and the ways that it can enhance our off-screen world while championing unplugged time, too.
