MY THOUGHTS:  I used to know all the astronuts names at one time.  But over the years they have slipped away.  Chris Hadfield is one I didn't know about.  Actually, I never heard of him.  When I went looking for Canadian books and authors, his name kept popping up.  So I got some info from google and headed to the library.  They had these 2 children's books, so I got them.  A couple things I like about children's books is the pictures and illustrations.  What the words don't tell you the pictures and illustrations will.  Really great books.  I give these books 5.....
These books are for 2 of my reading challenges......
