Kindergarten-Grade 3?In this addition to the popular series, life on our planet is compared with a manned shuttle mission that must take special care to insure the health and safety of its crew?"Earth is our home in space. We are all aboard the same spaceship." Once that concept is established, youngsters learn interesting facts about the supplies needed to survive?food, air with oxygen, and water. Lauber is adept at writing for this audience, using simple vocabulary and straightforward sentences. She covers thoroughly the methods by which Earth's vital elements are replenished. Keller's bright and colorful drawings further explain complicated concepts such as the water cycle. A welcome title for young readers who are just beginning to understand the environment.?Blair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, VA
