50 Years Ago: The Moon

Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11   If you’re looking for a great introductory book to share with someone describing the first human journey and landing on the moon, check out Brian Floca’s “Moonshot.”   This 56 page picture book tells the story while mixing in the facts for an audience of ages 4 and up.  The excitement builds towards blast-off and the reader goes along on the journey.

Cover image for Destination : Moon  Another best pick for early readers is reliable Seymour Simon’s “Moon.”
