Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Rocket Propulsion Engineer approved! The explanation of rocket science, along with the fun experiments is a great way to get kids interested in space exploration. I have purchased several copies so far. I donated one to an elementary school library (there is a waiting list to check it out). One book, I gave to the interns at the small rocket company where my husband works. The interns actually find it helpful - the science is correct (however simplified). I plan on purchasing more to pass out to science inclined kids in my life. This book is excellent!
