5.0 out of 5 stars POPTASTIC! - WOW! - WE'RE GOING TO THE MOON! 20 April 2010
By Digger
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a book that can reinvigorate a 10 year child's sense of awe about the moon landings in a 51 year old, then look no further. This is it! This must be the book Tony Blackburn invented the term 'poptastic!' for. Although strictly only 12 pages, they are so full of such ingenuity that it puts Grunman's finest to shame. From page one's Redstone rocket shooting out of the page, narrowly missing going up your nose, to Eagle sitting proudly on the Sea of Tranquility, via a pop-up moon, this is really is a thrilling page-turner equal to going up in the Saturn 5 itself - well almost.

I took this into my children's school's book week to show the 5 year olds. The reaction - "Wow!" A book for children and the nostalgic adult alike. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous 6 Oct 2009
This was first bought for my 5-year-old nephew, and then bought again for my 3-year-old son. You'd have to have a heart of stone not to love the pop-up models, some of which almost rival the Apollo programmme itself in their ingenuity. Aimed at older kids, but young ones will love it too (as long as their curiosity doesn't include ripping the models apart). As recommended by Buzz Aldrin, who could ask for more?

5.0 out of 5 stars Moon Landing by Richard Platt & David Hawcock 18 Feb 2009
Moon Landing is an excellent review of Apollo. The cardboard engineering brings the subject to life as well as the very good text. Provides an overview for adults as well as children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous, informative, interactive and educational pop-up book 27 April 2010
By Z Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
My family and I recently visited the Houston Space Center and our 5-year-old daughter has expressed a keen interest in the subject of space exploration. I got this book as a means of making the complex concepts associated with space exploration a bit more accessible, and given that she is a visual learner, felt the pop-ups would serve as a high-motivating factor.

The book itself is well-designed with lots of fun features that provide details about rockets, mission planning, space suits, moon landing, the life inside a space capsule, and many more. The book begins with a brief overview of how space travel came to be, with mention of Project Mercury and the first pop-up is the launching of the Freedom 7 Mercury capsule. There is also a tiny booklet which contains photographs of all the Apollo missions' crew members. The next pop-up is of the Gemini 4 capsule with a side fold-out of the Saturn 5 rocket. This is followed by details regarding the moon missions with a pop-up of the moon, the lunar module adapter, and command service module, and important facts covering the early missions. The next pop-up was the most fascinating for my 5-year-old - that of an astronaut in his space suit with details about the function of each part of the suit. There are also some interesting tidbits about waste management aboard the capsules which elicited giggles from my daughter! The final pop-up is of the Eagle landing on the Moon (quite wonderfully done might I add) with details about that historic event.

This is a wonderful book for any child (and adult) that loves all things to do with space exploration. The pop-ups are well-done and the details are sufficient to satisfy basic curiosity whilst kindling interest to know more. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pop Up Book is Poppin' Good!!! 13 Sep 2009
By Paul M. Feinberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book gives the enthralling story of Apollo 11 in a clever, well-executed, and colorful format! Beginning with the Mercury Redstone Freedom 7 flight of Alan Shepherd, the book chronicles America's fantastic race to the Moon throughout the 1960's. The book is full of gorgeous photographs, drawings, and technical information on the various aspects of space exploration, including some of the various instrumentation. This is a great book especially geared for young people (probably K-6) who enjoy creative formats, however most adults would appreciate its concise, but wonderfully complete, glimpse of the history of Apollo 11 and what went into that mission. I bought my copy just because it so uniquely and extraordinarily presented the encapsulated history of this amazing mission. The final pop up in the book is a fun, colorful, and ambitious image of the Lunar Module "Eagle" and the two astronauts, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldren, landed on the Moon surface. Once the pop up is opened, it must be about 10 inches in height! I dare say that most of my college students could benefit from reading the facts presented in the book as they are no longer common knowledge. If mankind continues to push out into space to study, understand, and hopefully benefit from our knowledge of the Universe, then it makes sense that we never forget our amazing history and the many Blessings of the astoundingly successful NASA missions of our nation's past!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Book 1 Jan 2011
By Country Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My Father worked at Grumman when this was all happening so I plan to give this to my grandchildren for Christmas in 2011 so they can see what it was all about. Hopefully they will take care of this book and have it for many years as it is a pop-up book!

5.0 out of 5 stars my 4 yr old loves it 15 Feb 2010
By B. Seeman - Published on Amazon.com
My 4 yr old is really into 'space stuff' and we saw this at barnes & nobles but it seemed so expensive. I checked amazon while at the store and it was a much better price. He of course likes the 'pop up' element but it's also very educational.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moon Landing: Apollo 11 40th. Aniversary Pop-Up 3 Sep 2009
By Mr. W. J. Hodgson - Published on Amazon.com
This is a pop-up book to treasure well into the future. Superbly illustrated, with amazing paper engineered pop-ups that tell the story of Apollo 11. Even the Moon receives a special treatment, coming to life, before your very eyes! The book itself is well manufactured and will stand the test of time. A real joy for any space cadet.
