Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This comprehensive information book about space and space exploration is a good introduction for the primary grade reader. It offers plenty of clear and colorful illustrations with text that presents just enough to launch one into further study.” —Children's Literature

This comprehensive information book about space and space exploration is a good introduction for the primary grade reader. It offers plenty of clear and colorful illustrations with text that presents just enough to launch one into further study. Only two space travelers are named, Yuri Gagarin and Neil Armstrong, but there are plenty of named vehicles and equipment. Topics are featured on double-page spreads in this large formatted book. The moon is emphasized, to include the history of the moon and phases of the moon, from waxing to waning. More information about the nature of the international space station would have provided a balance to this heavily U.S.A.-centric book. A glossary, index and useful web sites end the book. 2001, Kingfisher, $14.95. Ages 6 to Adult. Reviewer: Jacki Vawter
