Attention space lovers! Did you ever want to visit space? In 2001, Dennis Tito was the first space tourist. He paid $20 million to travel into space. As companies develop vehicles for regular people to visit space (for lots of money), more and more people could become space tourists. What if you were one of those people? How does it feel when you exit the earth's atmosphere? What does it feel like to float in microgravity? What would you eat? How would you eat? Everything floats. Even salt and pepper float! How would you get clean? The water droplets float, too! Also, how would you...use the bathroom? Answers to these questions and more, including what you'd see out the windows, how it feels to walk on the moon, and the question, 'How do you burp in space?' are all here. This 'travel guide' to outer space is filled with crazy facts, cool ideas, and quotations from astronauts.

How Machines Work: Zoo Break!

David Macaulay (2015), 32 pages
Audience: K - 3rd Grade
Category: Nonfiction
Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
Sloth and Sengi are friends and share an enclosure at the zoo. They have grown bored with their home and have decided that it is time to escape. Author David Macaulay uses this story to introduce the reader to different types of simple machines. His signature illustration style and pop-up type moving parts combined with a well written text provide a very clear explanation of how and why these machines work. The very different personalities of our heroes, one slothful and the other quite industrious, add an element of fun and suspense. Readers may laugh out loud as they spot trouble coming before these friends do.

Did you know that Surinam toads hatch from eggs that are in pits on their mother's back? Or that the assassin bug spears its prey with a poisonous 'beak?' Read all about the fascinating, and slightly gross, habits of very unusual creatures. The paper collage illustrations are wondrous.
