A beautiful, insightful, and highly readable presentation of the Apollo missions. —Booklist, starred review

They effectively highlight the Apollo program's magnificent achievements, as well as its moments of tension and tragedy. Supplemented with an admixture of photos and labeled diagrams, the large-scale art adds a dazzling visual element to this grand commemoration. —School Library Journal, starred review

This unique portrait of the Apollo voyages is a remarkable combination of intimate details of the space flights, historical and scientific details about the missions, and paintings by one of the astronauts. The extended introduction presents the mindset of America after Sputnik that set the stage for America’s space program. Students will delight in details such as toilet procedures, meals, and clothing for moon walking. — VOYA, starred review
