Synopsis

Astronaut Academy Are You Ready for the Challenge by Steve Martin, Jennifer Farley

What's it really like to be an astronaut on a mission to Mars? Well, kids will not only find out but can also train for their own missions in this exciting activity book. Once enrolled at the academy, they face a variety of challenges and missions that mimic the real-life tasks astronauts may have to perform in space. Specific activities include hand-eye coordination exercises, obstacle courses, building a balloon rocket, basic first-aid skills, how to deal with weightlessness, and doing fiddly things while wearing big gloves! A jam-packed Space Goodies section includes stickers, a poster, board game, press-outs, and a model space shuttle. Informative, interactive, and fun, this book will appeal to all aspiring astronauts!
