Space Travel Review
Space Travel wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, but it wasn’t necessarily bad. The seven year old who pressed herself to my side the whole time we were looking at it loved reading off the simple facts. She had fun identifying the planets and looking at some of the pictures (especially the illustration that had all the planets lined up). The fact about astronauts feet grossed her out, so that was a fun little interlude. So, in terms of being a quick easy book that will delight (and apparently gross out) kids, it’s definitely a winner. If it gets kids interested in learning more about space, all the better.
From an adult standpoint, though, the pictures were odd. There were realistic pictures mixed in with complete fantasy pictures. Also, the dimensions on the pictures looked off. You could tell some of them had been incorrectly sized/distorted to fit the page. I did like the white on black text that the author chose to use. It’s not something I’m used to coming across in kid’s books, but it worked well and the kiddo had no problem reading it.
Space Travel may not be perfect, but it does exactly what it sets out to do. It’s a book for beginning readers that gives them a few fun facts and a few cool pictures to look at. It also lists a reference at the back so you can see exactly where the author pulled all the facts and pictures from. Space Travel is available on Amazon.
