Roberta Bondar is ready to be the first Canadian woman to ever go into space. Aboard the space shuttle Discovery, she blasts off and sees the Earth from far above. For eight days, she'll explore the wonders (and challenges) of space — from learning to sleep in zero gravity to the incredible sight of the stars beyond the atmosphere. What new scientific discoveries will she uncover?
This level one book from the I Can Read series uses easy but interesting vocabulary and simple sentences to teach young readers a little bit about Bondar's life — and an empowering message about curiosity and scientific discovery!
