Description

"The Astronaut Instruction Manual is a fantastic and vibrant preparatory guide for today's youth -- whether their futures are off in space or right here...on Earth." -- Lori Garver, Former NASA Deputy Administrator
Endorsed by authors, teachers, and congressman alike, Mike Mongo's Astronaut Instruction Manual excites a new generation of space explorers. The book, designed for children between the ages of 6 and 13, is a functioning, interactive instruction manual. Using mad-lib-style fill-in-the-blanks, Mongo encourages his readers to articulate and illustrate their own vision of next-generation space travel. The Astronaut Instruction Manual captures a new era of enthusiasm for space exploration, driven in part by new space celebrities (Commander Chris Hadfield, Elon Musk), and in part by a shift in popular interest in space (SpaceX rockets, The Mars Colonial Transporter, Kerbal).

Review quote

"An astronaut must be focused and prepared but also dynamic and creative. The Astronaut Instruction Manual is a fantastic and vibrant preparatory guide for today's youth -- whether their futures are off in space or right here...on Earth." -- Lori Garver, Air Line Pilots Association General Manager and Former NASA Deputy Administrator "Mike Mongo's passion for human spaceflight leaps off every page of this inspirational book. The Astronaut Instruction Manual is a bright-eyed guide to the basics of thinking and living like a space explorer, whether off-world or right here on Earth." --Lee Billings, contributor to Scientific American and author of Five Billion Years of Solitude "With writing that gets kids on the launchpad of greatness, Mike Mongo prepares young students for whatever life in space -- and on Earth --will throw at them." -- Doug Robertson, author of He's The Weird Teacher
