This book talks about space, in a way that is especially fun for kids, answering silly questions like "How do you burp in space?" It is all organized as if you were a tourist visiting space. Providing information like space stories, travel alerts, packing tips, and more. There is a table of contents, captions, photos, and fun clipart as well as a glossary in the back, space time line, suggested further reading, and an index.

This book would be great for grades 4th-5th. It introduces readers to the way gravity affects things in space. There are games to play throughout this book. Several different space concepts are covered throughout. The pictures are a mix of photographs and illustrations that pull the attention of kids. I really like this book and learned a lot of fun facts!
