Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Visually confusing, with a blueprint background for two typefaces, plus boxed material, this book informs readers about all kinds of rockets and spacecraft. In addition, it also discusses living in space, Newton's laws of motion, and the mechanics of flight, orbit, and reentry. To interest the committed reader, the book also includes a quiz to review science facts, a diagram of rocket parts, key words in a box, and a five-part set of directions on how to build a rocket that really flies. (In addition to household items, you need balsa wood, a drill, epoxy, bicycle pump and valve which makes this a cut above the usual project). With good information but busy page design, this volume will nonetheless appeal to rocket and space fans. 2000, Copper Beech, Ages 8 to 12, $21.90 and $6.95.
