Destination: Space
By Seymour Simon

      Imagine how cool it would be to be able to travel through the entire universe and see every bit of it. Well, “Destination: Space” is close to that feeling. With full-page pictures of beautiful discoveries made in space, Simon gives the reader a glimpse into the amount of information we know about our universe.

    The pictures in this book are AMAZING! There are page long explanations about what the pictures are of and the information needed to understand how big of an impact the discoveries are making on how we see the world. The information is a lot to take in, but the pictures are an incredible help in deciphering some of the more complicated explanations. Simon has put together an incredible book for kids on the mysterious nature of our planets’ home. I recommend this book for any space lover.
