Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Armstrong was the first man to set foot on the moon, but his love for space and flying had been around for almost his whole life. This book takes the reader through Neil's life as he grew up in Ohio, took his first plane ride, and looked through his first telescope. He got married and had two children, and after serving as a fighter pilot in the Navy, Neil worked for NASA, becoming an astronaut. Details of the trip to the moon are covered, including the close call they experienced when landing on the moon. The last few pages talk about the hero's welcome the astronauts received. This is an informative book and contains many pictures of Neil growing up and his trip to the moon. There is a glossary in the back for important words, as well as suggestions on how to obtain additional information on this subject. This book is part of the "People We Should Know" series. 2006, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 7 up.
