Rainy summer days are no match for a little astronaut who builds the perfect rocket ship for an indoor space adventure to another galaxy, where the sky is his only limit

A stormy afternoon and an order from Mom to stay inside are no match for this little dreamer, who uses everyday household items--a rocket chair, a cardboard box, an old dish rag, and a super-duper imagination--to whip up a trip around the universe he won't soon forget.

My Rainy Day Rocket Ship is a high-spirited, engaging salute to the imagination of Black boys who use their beautiful minds to transform the mundane into the extraordinary, dream out loud, and boldly go where their sky is the only limit.
