Astronaut Aldrin and Minor (Reaching for the Moon) offer a second collaboration, tracing the history of flight from the Wright brothers through numerous NASA missions to envisioning a future in space. Paintings evoke the 1950s-1960s era, while Aldrin's text offers a compelling firsthand POV ("I had the privilege of being on board the final Gemini mission"). Additionally, quotations from Isaac Newton to President George W. Bush run across each page. A wealth of information as well as hints of whimsy-as a boy peers through the porthole of a spaceship, the text says: "One day your family may have some amazing vacation choices. Where will you go?"-will satisfy those captivated by space. Ages 6-8. (Apr.)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
