Gr 5–8—A great cover beckons readers inside what should be a fascinating tour of the space around Earth—and it is, despite a somewhat dry and repetitious writing style. Each of the four chapters opens with a black spread that includes space photos and white type with red highlights; the following pages feature black print on white backgrounds. The book is filled with photos and sidebars that bring greater range to the text—and a few grammatical issues. There is little else available for students about this important topic for future space engineers.
VERDICT General purchase.
