One of the unique things this book [is that it] has is a little bit about the adventure of flight and how it has developed[...]you can make astronauts, rockets, and space shuttles as well as jets, planes and a hot air balloon. It truly looks at all sorts of flight that we humans have tried. -Crafty Moms Share blog The title describes the theme very aptly: you get a variety of rockets & planes, a space shuttle, a space probe, a space pod and others. The stickers are small but cheerful and bright and perfect for decoration. -Nick Robinson, author, origami artist and blogger at Air and Space Origami by John Szinger is a great gift for kids and adults who love all things sci-fi, space and airplane related!
