He's a total astronut.
His favorite chapter was the one with all the International Space Station information. One person found this helpful. I bought this book thinking to use it for my First Lego League team to use this year as they have to learn about space travel. Nothing in this book to share. Its mostly a pep talk.
This book has no practical information at all and is essentially a pop-psych pep talk with lots of white space and filler clip-art. Absolute garbage and I recommend steering clear. The book is divided into sections and has fill in the blanks. The first thing you'll learn is the book's term for a space explorer is 'Humannaire' and if you are up to the task, you will need to find some people who will support you in your dream of becoming a 'humannaire' in space. Then you'll learn to breathe and pay attention. Along the way, you'll get introduced to big ideas to think about and find lots of things to Google.
The book is mainly about big ideas. It won't tell your kids to focus on math or science or any kind of STEM things, but it kind of subtly does. The big concept thinking is just what the next generation of explorers need to fire their imaginations and get them thinking about solving the problems we might encounter on long space voyages. How will we go the distance? What will we encounter? How will we survive? All are covered briefly, but with additional research if the 'humannaire' is interested.
I think it's a great little workbook to explore an interest for a young reader interested in space exploration.
