Letters from Space
“Clayton Anderson is launching off into space to live on the International Space Station. He writes letters to different people about his travels and answers different questions about space in letter form. He covers everything from the launch to adjusting to space to flying around with no gravity to spacewalking. The book contains excerpts from Day 1 to Day 152 when he arrives back home.
This is an informational book about what being in space is like. The facts were interesting, but the letters were long. It’s a picture book definitely aimed at older kids. The text in the letters was very kid-friendly. It offered good descriptions. The letter format was good, too. I think the illustrator’s style works great for this book. It gives a whimsical and funny side to some things that happen in space. I loved the addition of the alien to several of the pictures.
My six-year-old son liked this book so much he took it to his room. He thought the space facts were fun and sometimes very funny. My three-year-old didn’t make it though the book, but it is a longer picture book. I would recommend this book for children aged six to eight years.”
