Product description

Review

Full of tips from real-life astronauts on how to steer a rocket or spacewalk. A perfect fact book for budding space explorers. --The Daily Telegraph
<brThis book should go to the top of any must-have list for young children interested in space travel. It's packed with fascinating information on everything from what to study to help you become an astronaut, to the special training astronauts undergo, rocket science and how shuttles get into space, and what it's like to live on the International Space Station. After all, the children reading this book could become fully fledged astronauts in the 2030s. Inspiring stuff! --Lovereading4kids

A superb book all about how to become an astronaut... There's a lot of humour in it, and it's full of those little details that just make a book special. --Judges comments, Royal Society Young People's Book Prize 2016

Given that it costs about £300 million per ISS mission, we reckon £6.99 is a highly cost-effective way of learning how to train for, get to and live in space for kids without actually going there. --Mostly Books

This brilliant guide will tell you everything you need to know about becoming an astronaut and explains what life is like for space explorers. From training tips to spacewalk hints, it's packed with real-life astronaut knowledge! --National Geographic Kids

A fun, fact-packed and practical guide to launching your interstellar career. - The Liverpool Echo

A fascinating guide for budding astronauts. --The Guardian

Children who fancy a career as an astronaut... will love The Usborne Official Astronaut's Handbook, which gives you the lowdown on qualifications, the horrors of G-force and how to go to the loo in the International Space Station (into a kind of vacuum cleaner, apparently). It's full of good practical stuff. --The Spectator

A great non-fiction book, full of information for all space lovers. The children found it fun to read as well as educational due to the illustrations and funny comments. It would certainly inspire children. --Practical Preschool and Primary Teacher Awards

The essential book for would-be astronauts. --Books for Keeps
