    Who Is Neil Armstrong? Book Review

    My son read this book for a biography reading assignment in his second grade reading class. He really likes books on space. He loved reading about Neil Armstrong! He was actually the one that rated this book. He gave it five stars for the paper he turned in to his teacher.

    As my son was reading the book, he was sharing a lot of facts and details with me about Neil Armstrong and space. I could tell he was really absorbed by the story. He also read certain passages to me -- which we both enjoyed.

    I think this is a great book for anyone looking for a hero or someone that your child can look up to.
