A Book of Satellites for You (1958)

Branley, Franklyn M. Illustrated by Kessler, Leonard. A Book of Satellites for You. New York: Crowell. (48 p.) 21 x 23 cm.

Another satellite book. This one might be the one you can find everywhere. It is widely available because it was reprinted as one of the 1962 selections of the Weekly Reader Children's Book Club. The basic drawings make it a charming and primitive looking book.

This book describes in very basic terms satellite theory, satellites that have been launched and the future of satellites in space exploration. Includes very simple illustrations of satellites, rockets, astronauts, space stations, and a manned landing on the Moon. There was also a 1971 edition.
