Praise For Busy People: Astronaut

"What makes these books important is that each story focuses on a different character as they go about their daily work, and each day holds a new challenge for these busy people. A section entitled 'Next Steps' is included at the back of the books to prompt further discussion and develop vocabulary as well as information about the characters who work alongside the protagonists."

- Alan Petrucelli, Examiner.com

"This is a great addition for collections interested in space or in the 'Busy People' series, especially for teacher librarians in search of an offering that highlights a girl interacting with a STEM topic."
