LoveReading View on How to be an Astronaut and Other Space Jobs

Shortlisted for the Blue Peter Book Awards 2020, Best Book with Facts category

Taken from the Blue Peter Awards website: This fascinating picture book is full of brilliant information for children about the lesser-known elements of space exploration and clues them in as to how they might aspire to be involved one day. It’s useful to learn that astronauts can come from a military, medical or scientific background and be able to speak Russian as well as English. They also need to be highly qualified in their subject, as well as very fit and healthy for all the physical and mental training they will encounter.

Complete with a press-out model rocket to build and pages of stickers to play with, this is an original and inspiring read for young readers.
