Review:

What does it take to hold down a job in space? Linda, an astronaut on a space shuttle, describes all the ups and downs of her thrilling job in this Level 2 Dorling Kindersley book. It takes a lot of preparation and training to take a rocket trip to space. Linda has to pass medical tests, practice moving on a machine that mimics weightless space, and learn how to repair a telescope underwater (which is a bit like being in space). Once the shuttle lifts off, Linda floats around in zero gravity, eats food contained in sealed packets so it doesn't drift away, exercises on special machines, and dons a jet-propelled backpack that enables her to walk out in space and repair the broken telescope.

Dorling Kindersley's remarkably vivid photographs and illustrations and compelling text about space travel will motivate younger children to "learn to read--then read to learn!" This four-level learning-to-read series offers age-appropriate stories for all the early reader levels, preschool through grade 4. Children develop their reading skills, general knowledge, and love of reading. Level 2, for grades 1 to 3, is for children who are beginning to read alone. Longer sentences and increased vocabulary are meshed with lots of pictures and information boxes chock full of fun facts. (Ages 5 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
