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!!!!

With hundreds of photographs and an engaging text, this graphic survey provides a portrait of our nearest neighbour in space to commemorate the fortieth anniversary of the first lunar landing. Written for young readers and packed with information, this is the perfect introduction to the Moon and includes a free DVD inside the front cover full of images and film footage.
