Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-3-- The story of Apollo II' s historic flight 20 years ago from lift-off, through ``The Eagle has landed,'' to splashdown and subsequent quarantine (fear of ``moon germs''). Except for occasional side comments, Donnelly doesn't go into great detail, but she does a good job of setting the stage, with chapters on the history of the idea of flight to the moon, one on astronaut selection and training, concluding with a penetrating look at the flight's effect both on the three astronauts and on people in general. Despite our space program's huge and beautiful legacy of photographs, most of the illustrations here are bland color paintings that rob the narrative of a sense of reality and give the book a cheap look. Too bad--aside from Fradin's Moon Flights (Children's, 1985), there's little available on the subject for younger readers. --John Peters, New York Pub . Lib .

    Traveling to the Moon is Awesome

    My son picked out this book for a Christmas present for himself. I love this book. Every now and then, you find one of these readers that are just incredible - this is one of them. This book is fun, interesting, and makes traveling to the moon completely fascinating, exciting, a little bit scary, and magic. Just like it should be.

    My 5 year old loved it!!!!!!!

    He reads this every morning before I come in -- in the morning. So it is awesome, keeps him interested and asking for more. He can read about 95% without preschool but lots of mom help before now.
