Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
It is easy to settle into thinking that space exploration is a recent frontier, beginning in the 20th century. How wrong that is! Wooster starts her timeline in 2773 B.C when the Egyptians developed the 365-day calendar based on the stages of the star Sirius. Milestones continue at lengthy intervals until the 20th century when progress in space exploration accelerated like a spacecraft lifting off. Delightfully illustrated with cartoon-style characters and images, the timeline continues through the decades of the last century and into our own, projecting the future of space exploration. Each two-page spread is captioned with a headline that summarizes the milestones presented such as "The Space Race" and "Walking on the Moon." This book, one in a series of illustrated timeline books, concludes with a suggested activity to "Build Your Own Timeline," a glossary, a list of resources labeled "To Learn More" and an index. It would be a good resource in an elementary school science class or library. Reviewer: Hazel Buys
