From the Blastoff! Readers, this book is all about space shuttles. It teaches students what space shuttles are, how space shuttles launch, orbit and land. There is also a glossary, to learn more and index. The book has a very nice layout with bright colored pages, great photographs and accompanying text with bolded words that are found in the glossary, as well. All in all, a nice nonfiction book that young readers will enjoy and be able to learn a lot about space shuttles.
