Great new stories by Carole P. Roman: adventures and inspiration!

Today, I have two wonderful children’s books. Both books are told in beautiful prose and teach important lessons of dreams and adventures. Both books are written by Carol P. Roman, author of the If you were me and lived in… series as well as the Captain No Beard series. Both books are also beautifully illustrated by Mateya Arkova.

First, Rocket-Bye is an adventure of a rocket ship as it travels through the stars, the Milky Way, the constellations and past the planets. During the trip, the different plants are mentioned as well as their position in the solar system. The constellations are named with clues to the legends for which they are named.

Second, Can a Princess be a Firefighter? is a parent talking to his little girls about how she can be anything she wants to be. Any job she wants or even two as well as she does what she loves and enjoys. And no matter what job she does, she will always be a princess to her parent. So, yes, a princess can be a firefighter.

I loved both this books. The great adventure in Rocket-Bye and the wonderful lesson in Can a Princess be a Fighter? as well as the beautiful illustrations inspire children to dream and dream big. I highly recommend these books for any family or school library.
