I learned more about Jewish history from this book.

I think that this book is good, but I still gave it four stars because I like longer books. You should read it if you like biographies, space, or science.

This book was just OK

Firstly, I only chose this book because it was the least bad of all of the others in the selection, the lesser of four evils, if you may. It was a very good and informative book, however, and emotionally touching as well.

Very nice!

This book was just OK

It was a good book, but not the best PJ library book. It would have been good for parents, not kids.

This book taught me more about Israel.

This book was great. I really liked it and it was very sad at the end. I learned about the Israeli space program and its first astronaut. I did not know that Israel had joined the US space program.

asked some people and here is what I remember

1. Israel made copies of his n.a.s.a. "dogtags".
2. (the book said this too) that he was buried near the Ramat David air force base.

I learned more about Jewish history from this book.

I didn’t expect it to be as good as it was, it was really interesting because of all the good details. Like the Air Force and how the fighter missions worked. And it was sad but good.

This book was just OK

This book taught me more about Israel.

It was pretty good, but it was a little short and I really wanted to find out a little more about him. The first few chapters were a little vague. It didn't really talk about his childhood that much. It was still pretty good though.

Really Good
