Teaching kittehs about Space Travel is easy with these books from the future published in 1959. His cat, Atari, knew this book by heart, but still demanded that it be read to him several times a day. It even came with pictures!

His wife, the pink Jawa, read through the other book, making sure it had cat appropriate language inside its pages.

It was an exciting time.

Welcome to the future. I'll be here to explain what I can.

Pigs achieved space travel. I am sure cats can go where no pig has ever gone before.

These two books are titled:

Show Me the World of Space Travel by Julian May (1959)


The Shape of the Earth by Jeanne Bendick (1965)

Both of these gems, along with a large pile of other really old children and teen books were purchased several years ago at a church library sale.

Other books include: Manners for Minors, I Want to Be an Orange Grower, and Rockets, Missiles, and Moons.

When they got to the chapter about how cats are smelted to make rocket ships, he slowly closed the book and pretended to take a nap.

My friend has an old Build-it-Yourself issue of Popular Mechanics from 1946. It features things like A Ferris Wheel that is guaranteed to kill you if you build it.
