The rocket brings the families who live on 15 Cherry Drive together and makes them into a community. Can’t miss this reader based on a story called The Rocket Book by Peter Newell originally published in 1912.

Number 15 Cherry Drive is a normal house in a normal town. The people who live there don’t really take any notice of each other, except for formal greetings. All this is going to be different when Mr. Popper’s son Michael sets off a rocket in the basement which moves up through the house, changing people’s lives.
