"This account of the July 1969 lunar landing, for young readers ages six through ten, tells the story of the Space Race, offers insights into mankind’s fascination of the moon, and explains the technology that took astronauts to the surface of the moon.

Photographs and diagrams illustrate the informative text; a glossary and timeline are included. At the author’s website, teachers can download a four-page guide for use in the classroom. Older readers will find much to appreciate here; younger readers will require adult guidance.

Highly recommended.

"This was my last read of the week and I must say, it captivated me. My husband and I have been watching documentaries about space exploration and we've recently even watched two fictional series about missions to Mars. So my mind has been spinning with many details, already. Yet this nonfiction juvenile book gave me even more information than I'd previously learned. For example, I had no idea that Sputnik was only the size of a beach ball(!!!). And who knew Aldrin was the first to urinate on the moon? Also, after Armstrong and Aldrin rejoined Collins after their moonwalk, they took off their helmets and noticed a strange smell -- it was moon dust that clung to their boots. This book is 56 pages of dates, names, facts, and even unusual information about the steps and stages leading up to "destination moon" (including the actual landing and a brief look into the future). Additionally, there are 51 original photos and illustrations spread throughout the book that match the textual information. The back matter includes a glossary, books and websites for further reading, a Race to Space timeline, and an Index. Make sure your science-loving learners have access to this new nonfiction book!
