Overview

"This wonderful book retells our story vividly. I should know; I was there."
— Buzz Aldrin

Trace the history of people's fascination with the moon — and the scientific developments that led to a ground-breaking mission — in an out-of-this-world novelty book marking the first moon landing. Acclaimed author Richard Platt focuses on humankind's dreams of traveling to the moon, the race to conquer space, the technology needed to reach the moon and sustain the astronauts in space, and the moon landing itself. Re-creating the excitement of the expedition are extraordinary pop-ups depicting a rocket, the lunar module, a spaceship, and a spectacular spherical moon, while booklets and flaps offer readers a wealth of intriguing facts.

* Published in anticipation of the fortieth anniversary of the first moon landing on July 20, 1969

* Features official NASA photographs, two mini-books, and fun informational flaps

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 4-7

This is a handsome, carefully engineered compendium. The text begins with the so-called space race between the United States and the Soviet Union in the l950s and '60s and then offers brief descriptions of the 17 flights that made up the Apollo program. Here the emphasis is on the famous landing of the Eagle on the Moon in July 1969. The pop-ups and foldout pages on sturdy, shiny paper demonstrate the mechanical aspects of the spacecraft and offer a bold sense of both the rocketry and the trip. Small photographs and drawings surround the larger views. On a few pages a small booklet of information is tucked into a slotted page. With just one pop-up per spread accompanied by other engineered elements, the pages pack considerable information about the Moon and the human experience in traveling to it in both the visual material and the text. Unfortunately, the book lacks acknowledgments of authority. Some pages would be attractive exhibit views, but children will surely want hands-on reading of the book. It's a first-rate choice.-Margaret Bush, Simmons College, Boston

    Creative book on moon landing

    We purchased this book for our 6 year old son for Christmas because of his interest in the moon and astronauts. He loves it. Do note that the recommended age is slightly older (probably due to a higher reading level and intricate pop-ups).

    Capturing this historical and scientific event in such a creative way makes this book facinating for children and adults. Our son especially likes the pop-up astronaut and the 3-D moon. We have visited the Neil Armstrong Museum in Wapakoneta, OH, and he said the pictures looked like what we saw at the museum.
