Curiosity about space starts very early. And who better to ask about space than someone who’s actually been there – an alien boy named Jet Propulsion! “Ready Jet Go!” a series for children ages 5 to 8, is a kid’s first introduction to space, earth science, and technology. It’s all presented in an entertaining and engaging way that will inspire a life-long interest. Jet and his Earth friends explore the solar system and how it affects our planet, all while learning about friendship and teamwork.
