Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Although there is some repetition among these rudimentary overviews, each book serviceably presents its topic. Living describes astronauts' daily routines, explaining how air, water, and food are provided as well as what happens to their garbage. Equipment covers the array of machines needed for exploring the heavens, from telescopes to launch pads, as well as unmanned probes and shuttles. Travel focuses on manned space exploration, tracing its history and highlighting missions to the Moon and beyond. Working details the kind of work done in space and the facilities needed to do it. Full-color photos and other illustrations enhance the texts, demonstrate the diversity of the astronaut corps, and truly steal the show, although the captions generally repeat ideas found in the narratives. Attractive selections for early readers interested in space travel.-Jeffrey A. French, Willoughby-Eastlake Public Library, Willowick, OH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
