Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The history of space flight and the activities that led to the successful landing of a man on the moon are the focus of Stott's book. She describes the early success of the Russian program, their accomplishment in launching Sputnick as well as their achievement in launching the first man into space and bringing him back alive. It was a wake-up call to the American space program, which then went all out to be the first to put a man on the moon. A four-page spread showing the moon landing, astronauts at work, and their launch from the moon surface to return home is succinctly presented with a selection of photographs and illustrations. This feat took the combined resources of thousand of people and billions of dollars. The remainder of the book recaps the later missions, featuring the Lunar Rover and the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission and the incredible rescue of its astronauts. Space buffs and kids who want to be a part of the space program will find plenty here to keep them interested.
