great information about local history February 1, 2012
Reviewer: Colleen Sherlock from Derry, NH United States  
My daughter is a space buff and loves everything related to outerspace. I thought she would enjoy this since it has the feel of a comic book, but she gets a bit of history with it as well. She was especially touched when she learned that Christa McAulliffe was from New Hampshire which is where we live.
