My lad.. interested in outer space.
And what does Raincoast send me? A great great book on How to be a Space Explorer! Just so timely and perfect!
Great illustrations and wonderful pictures guide your child on their journey on How to be Space Explorer. Lonely Planet, cooperating with author and astrobiologist Mark Brake, have combined to produce an outstanding (and helpul) book on Space Exploration. Geared for 8+.
From quirky astronaut drawings that draw your attention to important details (for instance that 1/3 of all astronauts get space sick) To the full colour illustrations scattered through out the book.
This book is a resource you can use for quite a long time (or perhaps want to give a home on your shelf). Learning about mission, astronauts, needed supplies, equipment, the planets and their moons and so much more.
- Well written. The knowledge is presented as if they were talking to a person, for instance, "So how do we solve your fuel shortage problems for deep-space travel?" It's all YOU the astronaut and what YOU will need and issues that YOU need to figure out. This makes it a child-friendly book.
- Full-colour illustrations, and real-life photography where appropriate.
