Space Alphabet (1964)

Zacks, Irene. Illustrated by Plasencia, Peter P. Space Alphabet. New York: Prentice-Hall, Inc. (26 p.) 19 x 25 cm. C

One good alphabet book calls out for another. This has some of the most charming illustrations ever done for a space alphabet book.

Very basic book about space vocabulary, discussing words such as: capsule, engine, Laika, Moon and orbit. Each entry then has a 1 line definition and a simple illustration.
