“A fantastic and vibrant preparatory guide for today’s youth – whether their futures are off in space or right here…..on Earth.” -Lori Garver, Former Nasa Deputy Administrator
Do you have a middle-schooler who is interested in space? If so, this book is a MUST for them to take a look at. The author, Mike Mongo, motivates today’s young students to be the next generation of astronauts in his new book – The Astronaut Instruction Manual. He focuses on the reality that by the time middle-school students graduate from college, there is going to be amazing opportunities in space. Mr. Mongo also gets students thinking outside of the box about survival in space.
The Astronaut Instruction Manual doesn’t give you step by step instructions to become an astronaut, but it gives you the big picture of the possibilities of becoming one. This book also has reader interaction with filling in blanks on pages to keep the reader engaged and committed. There are also “tasks” for the reader to “Google” specific words that are used in the manual for better understanding of space and space lingo.

The Astronaut Instruction Manual can be purchased at Amazon. Order your copy today for all those astronaut enthusiasts on your Christmas list.
