Make Way For Books
Incredibly detailed illustrations appear simple and uncluttered, allowing a complicated mission to unfold with accessible mystery and anticipation. Inside front cover drawings and explanations detail the rocket's parts, and present a visual sequence of events. Rich descriptors deepen the reading experience, complementing oversize illustrations used to convey the enormous undertaking of a first lunar landing. The perspectives — from the earth, the living room, the rocket, and the moon — make this feel like a participatory reading experience.
Publisher Summary
Simply told, grandly shown, here is the flight of Apollo 11. Here for a new generation of readers and explorers are the steady astronauts, clicking themselves into gloves and helmets, strapping themselves into sideways seats. Here are their great machines in all their detail and monumentality, the ROAR of rockets, and the silence of the Moon. Here is a story of adventure and discovery -- a story of leaving and returning during the summer of 1969, and a story of home, seen whole, from far away.

Provides an up-close look at the historic mission to the moon that took place forty years ago.
