MOON LANDING 50TH ANNIVERSARY


Snappy verse and retro art brings readers along for Apollo 11's historic, eight-day mission to the moon in 1969. Young readers will learn the basics about the gear, equipment, and spaceship used by the astronauts, as well as the history of NASA's moon mission. O' Rourke's vibrant and retro illustrations paired with McReynolds' short verse creates a perfect read aloud for preschool and kindergarteners eager to learn about Buzz Aldrin's trip to the moon. Back matter includes a bibliography and author's note with additional information about the mission and the crew's return home after the historic first lunar landing.
