Children's LiteratureFor kids beginning to read on their own and who have an interest in nonfiction, the "Usborne Beginners" series may be just what they need. In this book, the life of an astronaut is described and illustrated with pictures and drawings. In addition, the lift off is described along with a close look at how the shuttle is structured. There are answers to the very real questions that life in space poses. What do the astronauts wear, how do they eat and drink in a no-gravity environment and most of all, how do they shower and use the toilet? The back is filled with facts that are presented in a logical format and in terms that beginning readers will understand. The book has a table of contents, glossary, index and refers the reader to Usbornes' Quick Links Web site. The back cover lists some Internet safety rules and also has a note for adults. This book would also be a good choice for kids not reading on grade level or those in ESOL programs. 2003, Usborne, Ages 5 up.
