5.0 out of 5 stars My Niece Loves Space and this book! 26 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback
This is a great gift for children. Yes it is a children's book with beautiful photographs from space. My niece is fascinated with space and this was a great introduction to one of our history makers, Chris Hadfield. It shows space from an Astronaut's view and lets the imagination work hard!

5.0 out of 5 stars So glad I purchased this delightful book! 25 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Beautifully written, amazing pictures,makes me feel proud to be living on our planet, with people like Chris, who has an inspiring attitude, so that any young person reading this may be filled with "I can do that too, or perhaps reach for their own stars! Thanks Amazon! ECole."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great and inspiring for very young children 24 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback
It is definitely a book for young children. If you are looking for a book for adults or a coffee table book, this is NOT it. However, it is extremely inspiring and written at a level 4 - 9 year olds can really understand. This is perfect for bed time stories, school libraries, and a great keepsake. Chris Hadfield is such an inspiration and this little book explains his journey from dream to reality so well!

3.0 out of 5 stars Child not adult 14 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback
I did not realise this was basically a children's book. I had anticipated more of a photographic coffee table book, probably mislead by the price which was quite dear for what it is. It would make a nice gift for a child aged 9-12 who is interested in space.

2.0 out of 5 stars I Returned This Book 22 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The product was poor quality and not laid out in an appealing way. Surprising as it could have been so interesting. Photographs he sent back on a nearly daily space were awesome - it did not come across in this book I am afraid. I sent it back.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing! 30 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It would have been helpfull had it been advertised as a children's book, so for me it was very disappointing. I have read Chris Hadfeilds other book, 'An Astronaughts Guide To Life On Earth' This book is full of interesting facts and also photos, so well written, it was hard to put it down.
