'In this inspiring story, a young bunny named Zippy dreams of traveling to outer space. When the opportunity to attend space camp arrives, she worries she might not be capable enough to compete with the other kids. But Zippy's desire to build her own rocket is bigger than her fear of failing, and through hard work and creativity she ends up making her big dreams come true! Through whimsical illustrations and encouraging text, children will discover how standing up to fears both big and small will make them stronger and unstoppable. With encouraging phrases that can turn into your personal slogan, such as 'You're why must be bigger than your fear,' this is such a wonderful illustrated book with a great message for adults and children alike. Generally suited for children who are mature readers as this book is a longer story and has advanced words. But don't let young ones miss out - it's a great read aloud story to encourage social emotional development in children. It's a book that touches on bravery, resilience, confidence, facing fears and overcoming obstacles. I also think it can be a sweet gift of encouragement for adults.' - Paws and Pages by Annie
In this didactic narrative, young bunny Zippy pursues her astronaut dreams with welcome familial support. When her brother Gus, a gardener who knows Zippy's heart is in the stars, encourages enrollment in space camp, Zippy fears the 'big, smart-looking critters signing up.' Remembering wisdom from her grandmother--'Your WHY must be bigger than your fear'--and subsequently guided by her parents and camp counselor, Zippy commits and makes strides at camp, learning that 'action is the antidote to fear.' But when a garden-related accident interferes, Zippy must navigate moving beyond her frustrations. Friend's illustrations are warmly colored, and a variety of critters abound. The lessons Zippy receives--'veryone needs accountability,' among others--are graphically imposed on their respective pages, but the dialogue is no less impactful ('Being brave doesn't mean you're never scared... courage means taking an action, even when you feel afraid'). Though the text-heavy pages make this a hefty readaloud, it's an uplifting story for increasingly independent readers.
