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!
