The Big Beyond: The Story of Space Travel (no cookie - sorry!)
The mysteries of space have intrigued us since ancient times. Early observers named the constellations as a way to keep track of the starry patterns in the night sky. Through the years, astronomers discovered planets, moons, and many other objects. As technology improved, the dream of physically exploring space became reality, and space shuttles blasted into the world above our heads. Where will we go next?
Enjoy this brilliantly written history of space travel in rhyme from the award and prize-winning poet, James Carter accompanied by the wonderful illustrative work of Aaron Cushley.
Recommended for ages 3-12.
