This beautifully illustrated educational book, part of the innovative A World In Motion program, teaches engineering principles to primary-age children through an imaginative and exciting story.

In The Rocket Age Takes Off, readers explore the whimsical world of Robert Goddard and learn about the father of modern rocketry. This book follows Dr. Goddard’s exciting journey to build the world’s first liquid-fueled rocket and describes how his inventions advanced space exploration.
