How Does a Spacecraft Reach the Moon? by Barbara J. Davis, Debra Voege

The Moon is very far from Earth. Yet, scientists have been able to get satellites, shuttles, and other spacecraft into space and a few manned spacecraft to land on the Moon. How Does a Spacecraft Reach the Moon? reveals the science behind propulsion and the energy it takes to get large craft into space. Colorful photographs and illustrations, complemented by real-world examples, will ignite young readers' interest in space and the vehicles humans use to visit there.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

Daisy Pennock – age 15

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
