Astronomy Funbook (1955)
I love this workbook/playbook. Several of them were produced by the same publisher recycling pages and illustrations between 1953 and 1961.
These were the equivalent of the the British Annuals with stories, puzzles, and games.
I like how the illustration are simple line drawings of sophisticated concepts. Although that moonship is going to have a problem taking off again. It looks like the artist didn't actually see how that ship was supposed to land and had to guess.
