The Astronaut's Handbook Press Reviews

A fun, fact-packed and practical guide to launching your interstellar career! - Booktrust A fascinating guide for budding astronauts. - The Guardian Full of tips from real-life astronauts on how to steer a rocket or spacewalk. A perfect fact book for budding space explorers. - The Daily Telegraph Given that it costs about GBP300 million per ISS mission, we reckon GBP6.99 is a highly cost-effective way of learning how to train for, get to and live in space for kids - without actually going there - Mostly Books This book should go to the top of any must-have list for young children interested in space travel - Lovereading4kids 'Children who fancy a career as an astronaut... will love The Usborne Official Astronaut's Handbook, which gives you the lowdown on qualifications, the horrors of G-force and how to go to the loo in the International Space Station (into a kind of vacuum cleaner, apparently). It's full of good practical stuff' - The Spectator This brilliant guide will tell you everything you need to know about becoming an astronaut and explains what life is like for space explorers. From training tips to spacewalk hints, it's packed with real-life astronaut knowledge! - National Geographic Kids A great non-fiction book, full of information for all space lovers. The children found it fun to read as well as educational due to the illustrations and funny comments. It would certainly inspire children - Practical Preschool and Primary Teacher Awards 'The essential book for would-be astronauts.' - Books for Keeps
