Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
On July 20, 1969, astronaut Neil "Buzz" Armstrong stepped off of a metal ladder connected to the Lunar Module of Apollo 11 and onto the surface of the moon. As he descended, he stated a line that was to become one of the most memorable quotes of the twentieth century. Aldrin's, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" remains a trademark statement that defined the determination that lay at the heart of the NASA space program. In The First Moon Landing the story of the race to be the first nation to put an astronaut on the moon is presented as part of the broader "Landmark Events in American History" series. In this chapter of that fine series, Anderson chronicles the early stages of the American space program. Then Anderson moves on to some of the tragic failures that dogged NASA prior to the culminating landing on the moon. Anderson closes this illustrated and well written book by outlining some of the space missions that followed not only the Apollo 11 mission but also more recent expeditions. Mankind continues to probe space with an eye toward even more ambitious ventures in the future. In this particular work, readers will gain a reasonable introduction to that great step for mankind, the first successful lunar landing. 2004, World Almanac Library, Ages 12 up.
