Synopsis

Astronauts by David West

Introducing astronauts! How much do you think you know about astronauts? You may know that astronauts have landed on the moon, but do you know why you can jump higher on the moon than you can on Earth? What is a russian astronaut called? How does a space suit keep astronauts safe? Well this book will tell you! A perfect introduction for kids who want to know what being an astronaut is all about. Bit-sized facts mean you can dip into this book at random, or read it cover to cover. Part of the series Lots of Things You Want to Know About, four books that take a look at some of the most dangerous jobs...ever! Aimed at children aged 7+ these books combine large full colour illustrations and simple paragraphs of text to encourage children to read around these high-interest topics.
