My Space Ship's Log (1959)
My Space Ship's Log is basically a geography and social studies workbook that they tried to put a "space age" slant on. The graphics are simple and I have eliminated most of the geography.
My space ship's log. Coral Rupprecht and Marion Kurutz. Kenworthy Educational Services, Inc. 1959. (B-3425) 64 p.
First we have the Lieutenant's oath and their pilot's license.
What I find particularly enchanting are the kids in their flying saucer as they move around the continents learning about different countries.
Not especially scientific, but another way for children to feel they are part of a "space age."
These two illustrations of "space age" camping I especially enjoy.
