Description-

  • Space is a vast and mysterious place. There are many environmental challenges, including enormous distances between planets and moons, lack of air and gravity, extreme cold, and radiation. This book presents these problems and examines the technologies developed so far to overcome them and make living in space possible. Through compelling text and impactful photographs, readers will learn about past space travel, life on the International Space Station, and what the future hopefully holds for space exploration and colonization.

    November 1, 2020

    Gr 2-5-Each book in this series varies in the number of chapters, but each chapter is two pages long. Chapters feature a page of text and a relevant photo. Captioned photos, vocabulary words in boldface, and corresponding infographics break up the information. Every title explains how modern people live in the locations, along with the history, problems (such as climate change), and the interconnectedness of life in every environment. Living in the Desert describes how governments around the world work together to stop the spread of deserts. The titles make clear that climate change has negatively impacted Earth. While the overall design isn't eye-catching, the graphics don't detract from the information. A glossary, an index, and other websites for further reading are included. VERDICT A compelling introduction to how people survive in climates around the world and in outer space.
