The Lovereading4Kids comment

Fact packed and illustrated with some outstanding and original photographs, this provides the background story to the world’s endeavours to get to the Moon. The early missions, how the astronauts are trained and the details of their spacesuits, equipment and food, the countdown to the historic moonwalk in 1969 and details of the subsequent missions are all excellently recounted making this an important book for anyone who is serious about man’s exploration of the moon. Don’t forget that the most likely people to have the chance to be part of a successful mission to Mars will be those aged around 9 now so if you have a budding astronaut then start here with this book and/or one of the other titles we’ve selected such as Moon or One Small Step to get the pulse rate soaring and the excitement building!!!!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
