“Very well-structured and fully illustrated, the book also presents fascinating mission highlights about all the space shuttles. The drawings and photographs greatly enhance the text…There is a brief but helpful glossary, as well as references to additional resources for learning about space. This book emphasizes the wide diversity of training and backgrounds of Americans who have succeeded in getting to space and would be excellent for informing and inspiring any young potential astronaut. – Science Books & Films
“A combination of realistic watercolor illustrations and NASA photographs contribute to the overall learning experience. A book packed with information for aspiring astronauts and others interested in space exploration.” – Children’s Literature
“In addition to the science and space education values of “Endeavor’s Long Journey,” a sound subtext message about the value of strong cooperation among many different individuals is carefully conveyed. Color illustrations sensitively express these goals and add detail. “Endeavour’s Long Journey” is excellent educational material, recommended reading for children age 7 and up.” – Midwest Book Review
