Liftoff! An Astronaut’s Dream is the true story of Astronaut Mike Mullane achieving his childhood dream of flying into space. The story blasts young readers into space and thrills them with the fear and excitement of riding a space shuttle and watching the earth from 300 miles in orbit. This is an educational, inspirational, and motivational story. With flashbacks to his youth, Mullane emphasizes his ‘normal’ childhood. He wasn’t academically gifted. He wasn’t an athlete. He wasn’t popular. Yet, he was able to make a dream come true. Mullane’s message is that any child can achieve significant life-success through the practice of these values: Do your best throughout your life. No one can ask for more and you should never accept less from yourself; Be tenacious. Don’t give up when you encounter the first speed-bump in pursuit of a dream; Make your education a top priority; Take care of the only body you will ever have. You’ll need it for whatever dream you are following; Be a team player and an inspiring team leader. Soft cover, 84 pages, 9 B&W photos.
