This book is about rockets. I liked this book for two reason. First, there were plenty of pictures and diagrams with descriptions of how a rocket operated. Each page was completely different, yet shared something relevant about rockets, whether it would be about the history of the first man-made rockets, to the Great Space Race. This book was very educational and did a great job organizing information in a way that was clear and predictable to readers. For example, on page 18-19, the author explains what Project Gemini is and then displays several different pictures about the project with captions attached to those pictures. This made it very helpful to absorb information. I also really liked how there were several real-life experiments that readers can participate in at the end of the book. These hands on activities are a great way to engage readers in the world of space and astronomy. ( )
