A Is for Astronaut: Blasting Through the Alphabet

(4) K-3 Illustrated by Scott Brundage. Retired astronaut Anderson introduces readers to a surprisingly detailed alphabet book of space terms. Each letter introduces a concept related to astronautics via a brief poem with sometimes forced rhymes and meter. Readers seeking elaboration can consult the paragraphs of additional information included with each letter. Brundage's richly colored, realistic illustrations complement the text, which invites repeated perusals and reading aloud.
