Astronaut Handbook [Hardcover] All 5 Star Reviews on Amazon Author Meghan McCarthy blasts readers off to astronaut school in her new, young, nonfiction picture book. Kids learn how it feels like to be weightless. Have your measurements taken -- 100 to be exact -- for your very own NASA space suit. Meghan McCarthy has created the perfect book to share with children who want to be NASA astronauts when they grow up. Full-color spreads done in acrylics on gessoed paper show authentic facilities like a swimming pool, a jet, and the Vomit Comet (a plane ride that allows passengers to experience weightlessness). The text and illustrations are simply done, and their very sparseness highlights important stages in astronaut preparation. A space suit and toilet are shown against white backgrounds, and their parts are clearly labeled. The space-shuttle liftoff, painted vertically, and images of the smiling characters in space capture the excitement of this ultimate adventure. The author includes a page of fascinating facts as well as a list of places to visit. This appealing book is sure to find a wide audience. Features:
  • Reading level: Ages 4-8
  • Hardcover: 40 pages
  • Publisher: Knopf Books for Young Readers (June 2008)
  • Language: English
  • Dimensions: 10.1 x 8.9 x 0.3 inches
