This book is very fun and informational. I feel like this book should be for older students and should be used for fun. This book is very lengthy if you were to read every word. Overall, I think this book is great but it can be used to introduce new topics or to add some fun thoughts about science in the classroom.

This informational book explains the various parts of space exploration. The concepts that are covered may be a little outdated but would give students who are interested in space a great place to start. The book offers the student many pictures that help explain the various information about space. It would be a great book for students to understand the excitement that comes along with the start of space exploration. The sections on the future and what lies ahead could lead into a student comparing what was expected to happen in space and what actually did.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0756607310, Hardcover)

What's cooler than outer space? Kids and adults alike will enthusiastically assert that astronauts, space ships, and rocket science are some of the most fascinating subjects on (or rather, off) earth. Space Exploration, a stellar addition to Dorling Kindersley's Eyewitness Books series, does this immensely popular topic justice. Learn why astronauts take passports into space! Discover the perplexing mechanics of using a toilet while weightless! View a model of the first planned space station! Kids can also read up on subjects like the space race, moon landings, astronaut fashion, dangers and disasters, and science in space. Abundant full-color photos of everything from dogs in spacesuits to views from satellites complete this zero-gravity exploration, and ensure that if your children weren't already space-obsessed, there will be no turning back now. (Ages 9 to 12)
