Endorsed by authors, teachers, scientists and Congressmen, Mike Mongo’s Astronaut Instruction Manual for Pre-Teens excites a new generation of space explorers.

The book, designed for children between the ages of eight and thirteen, is a functioning, first-step instruction manual. With excitement and honesty, Mongo encourages his readers to articulate and personalize their own vision of next-generation space travel. Driven in part by new space celebrities—Commander Chris Hadfield, Elon Musk, Alyssa Carson—and in part by a shift in popular interest in space, including SpaceX rockets, the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, and Kerbal Space Program videogaming, The Astronaut Instruction Manual for Pre-Teens captures a new era of enthusiasm for space exploration.
