Booklist - 10/01/2018 Vacationing on other planets may seem like a crazy notion, but Dr. Dave has an even wilder one: people from Earth living on other planets. Retired Canadian astronaut Williams begins by discussing the factors that make Earth a “Goldilocks planet,” just right for human habitation. After considering the conditions (heat, cold, weak gravity, poisonous gasses, no atmosphere, no solid surface, no known water) that make individual planets and moons in our solar system less than ideal for earthlings, he looks at the everyday challenges of living on Mars or our moon in more detail. Like the three earlier volumes in the Dr. Dave Astronaut series, this large-format book has an attractive, high-energy presentation, with text boxes, color photos, and cartoonlike digital drawings of kids and animals on every page. Perhaps the main advantage of hearing these ideas from an astronaut is credibility, but the text combines practical information with a light tone and irrepressible optimism that kids will find engaging. Will the book's readers live on another planet some day? “It could happen!” - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
