The Earth is Your Spaceship (1963)
Well let's see if I can be a little more diligent about posting in December. Here is a quick one with not very much "space art". However I love the cover.
Schwartz, Julius. Illustrated by Simont, Marc. The Earth is Your Spaceship. New York: Whittlesey House. (32 p.) 26 cm. Cloth, DJ.
A charming book about how the Earth travels in space, gravity, the causes of day and night etc. It has only one "space" illustration, a child in a space capsule. It discusses the Earth as a model spaceship with air, heat , gravity, food, etc. See 1965 reprint.
