Children's LiteratureThe astronauts Mike Collins, Buzz Aldrin, and Neil Armstrong don their spacesuits. These brave men are going to the moon! No one has ever been there before. The countdown begins... 3-2-1 liftoff! Days pass as the astronauts fly their way to the moon. People watch the astronauts' progress on their TVs. Finally the spacecraft approaches the moon. Neil Armstrong takes that first step and says to a watching world, "One small step for man; one giant leap for mankind." This is an excellent picture book, with clear illustrations and simple text on each page, to introduce the preschool child to this important historical event. 2002, Puffin Books/Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers, Ages 3 to 8.
