Becoming a Spacewalker - My Journey to the Stars (Hardcover): Jerry L. Ross, Susan G. Gunderson Becoming a Spacewalker - My Journey to the Stars (Hardcover)
Jerry L. Ross, Susan G. Gunderson
R393 R333 Discovery Miles 3 330 Save R60 (15%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This nonfiction picture book is a children's version of NASA astronaut Jerry L. Ross's autobiography, Spacewalker: My Journey in Space and Faith as NASA's Record-Setting Frequent Flyer, designed for ages 7-12. Told in friendly first-person narration, it represents how Ross followed his dream from rural 1950s northern Indiana to Purdue University and then outer space. The thirty-two-page book is illustrated with personal photos and memorabilia. It is formatted into twenty-three narratives organised in chronological order illustrating events and experiences in Ross's life. Pages attractively interweave photos and text while prompts encourage readers to engage in in the story. Ross possessed specific character traits that helped him make choices and overcome obstacles as he struggled against the odds to realise his dream: curiosity, persistence, and believing in oneself. As the story unfolds and readers begin to make personal connections with Ross, his approach to problem solving and working through setbacks provides a powerful example for children. Content area concepts are integrated throughout the story, including but not limited to science, technology, engineering, math, visual literacy, financial literacy, geography, flight, and the race to space. Gravity, for example, is a major theme illustrated within the content of the story. Online guides for teachers using the book in a classroom setting (third to fourth grade recommended) are linked to throughout. A map of the United States on the inside front cover invites children to follow the path of Ross's journey from Crown Point, Indiana, to Kennedy Space Center. A timeline on the inside back cover compares and contrasts benchmark events in Ross's life and career with important events in flight and space travel history.

But when George befriends them and Cosmos, their super-computer, he finds himself on a wildly fun adventure, while learning about physics, time and the universe. With Cosmosís help, he can travel to other planets and a black hole. But what would happen if the wrong people got their hands on Cosmos? George, Annie and Eric arenít about to find out, and what ensues is a funny adventure that clearly explains the mysteries of science. Garry Parsonsí energetic illustrations add humour and interest, and his scientific drawings add clarity.

"The sense of immediacy is irresistible and will cause children who consider the event just ancient history to feel as if they too had left footprints on that distant, dusty surface."
--School Library Journal
Only July 29, 1969, as Americans sat glued to their televisions and radios, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin did the seemingly impossible--somthing humans had dreamed of doing for centuries: They traveled 240,000 miles through space and set foot on the moon. One small step for man; one giant leap for mankind. This achievement not only brought the moon within reach, but now everything seemed possible. If it could be imagined, it could be done.
