Star Berth (1982) Part 1

This is a little out of my scope for children's books but I enjoy the interesting illustrations. It seems to be commemorating the25th anniversary of the soviet space program (which began Oct 4, 1957).  It looks like poetry and illustrations inspired by the history of space exploration in Russia.

Star Berth (1982) Kharkov: Soviet Union. 112 p.

I have reproduced only some of the text but I am sure you will enjoy the "heroic" illustrations.

Since this is a busier week for me, I will give you more illustrations next week in Part 2.
