Book Review: Milo’s Moonlight Mission by Kathleen M. Blasi

The most spectacular night skies are revealed when we plan for the ideal moment–with loved ones by our sides. This heartwarming tale is perfect for space fans and young budding astronauts!
When the weather forecast predicts a middle-of-the-night meteor storm, Captain Milo wants desperately to witness it. But will his Second-in-Command have enough time to accomplish this important mission with him?


My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the publisher. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Milo has a great imagination, and he wants his mom to pretend to go to space with him as his second in command. Unfortunately, his mom ends up being too busy that day, but she has a surprise for him the next morning. They get up early and witness the Leonid Meteor Storm!

Milo’s Moonlight Mission is a cute book that encourage imagination. At the end, it explains the difference between meteor showers and meteor storms (I learned something new), and it gives information about the occurrences of Leonid showers and storms in November.

Children will enjoy the story about Milo getting to see an exciting meteor storm. It’s a good book for parent and child to read together.
