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.
Do you have what it takes to become an astronaut, a spaceship engineer or to work at Mission Control? Find out all about space and all the incredible space jobs you could do, from training to be a space chef or designing spacesuits to searching for new planets we could live on, or even blasting into space and living in the International Space Station.
This book will inspire anyone with an interest in science and space exploration. Paperback includes a press-out-and-make rocket, over 100 stickers and fold-out space scenes!
