The small flaps on each page open to facts about equipment used in space walks and more. Kids can follow the chapters in order or jump from "Landing on the Moon and Mars" to "The Milky Way." Though the material covered is not in-depth, it is current and includes Pluto as part of the Kuiper belt rather than as a main planet of the solar system. With clear, vivid illustrations, this selection is more a conversation starter about space exploration than a go-to text for a science report. The low contrast of the font in a few sections, along with the size of the flaps, makes this title better suited for an older audience. The amazing spiral pop-out section on the universe depicts the magnitude of the solar system in a tactile way that will build a better mental image in readers' minds of Earth's place in the universe.
