On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong took “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” when the Apollo 11 landed on the moon. But it wasn’t just one man who got us to the moon. Rocket to the Moon! explores the people and technology that made the moon landing possible. Instead of examining one person’s life, it focuses on the moon landing itself, showing the events leading up to it and how it changed the world. The book takes readers through the history of rocket building: from ancient Chinese rockets, to “bombs bursting in air” during the War of 1812, to Russia’s Sputnik program, to the moon landing. Beautifully illustrated and well-researched, this book is the perfect resource for curious readers and tomorrow’s scientists. It includes a timeline of space travel, a bibliography, and an index.
This is my first Brown Book, but it will not be my last! Rocket to the moon! takes us back in time to when we, of course, landed on the moon, but in such a fresh and fun way! I was literally sharing interest facts with my husband as I read through this comic-like children’s book! Such as the shuttle held 950,000 gallons of fuel and used up 500,000 gallons of it within the first two and a half minutes! Wow! That is awesome!.
The illustrations were wonderful and I loved everything about the book! I am impressed!
