Grade 2-4?From these two accounts, young readers?or older ones reading below grade level?will get a clear picture of how the U.S. got its manned space program off the ground. The authors are specific about each project's goals and how well they were met. Through telling facts and incidents, the texts convey a sense of how costly, complex, and sometimes undependable the technology was; what each mission accomplished; and how the astronauts needed courage and quick action to save their missions from disaster. The large, well-leaded type and generous selection of period photographs, most in color, make these titles visually appealing. The lists of books, addresses, and Web sites provide well-chosen gateways to further detail about space, NASA, the astronauts, and the history of space exploration. Both will fill in holes and will be popular additions to subject collections of any size.?John Peters, New York Public Library
