Stories to Remember (1962)

One of my side passions is those books used in school to teach about space. This one has only one or two stories about space in it, the rest being your standard "Dick and Jane" reader. However the cover is a lot of fun.
The illustrations are a nice reminder of the wonder of Echo. It used to be bouncing signals off a satellite was a miracle, so this reader took the time to explain this wonder to children.

  1. Wasn't this balloon satellite called Echo? I remember watching it cross the sky. It was extremely bright.
