What is it like to walk in space—to use cutting-edge equipment and conduct experiments in a 280-pound space suit? How do you get there in the first place? Would-be spacewalkers will find enthusiasm, vibrant encouragement, and a host of amazing facts, photos, drawings, and descriptions in this engaging guide cowritten by three-time shuttle astronaut Kathryn D. Sullivan and children’s book author Michael J. Rosen (who also provides illustrations). From detailed info about how to train (sometimes underwater!) to descriptions of the emotions spurred by seeing Earth from above, this guide will leave readers inspired and excited to start their own journeys into space.

This was such a neat read. Not only is How to Spacewalk written by an astronaut, but the first American woman to walk in space!

The images and illustrations are great. Taken right from Kathryn Sullivan's childhood or NASA, as well as drawn by Michael J. Rosen, there is something took look at on every page!

There is a little bit more text that my younger child would like, but the author does a great job of breaking it up with bullet points and fun graphics.
Sullivan is very informational, and goes step by step on what it takes to prepare to be an astronaut, starting with a good education.

This is a very fun and informational book for children ages six and up!
