This book would be useful to use while teaching about the moon landing or even to use while teaching about team work. I feel like this book was really insightful. It gave me a new perspective on the moon landing and allowed me to visualize th from more than just what actually happened. I got to see it from the seamstress who made the space suit and from the engineer. It was really interesting to not recognize that perspective before and then read the book and realize that occurs all throughout life. Team work is very important and that was a large lesson in the book. ( )

This book gives the reader a "behind the scenes" look at what made the Apollo 11 moon landing possible.

A few key features of this book are the illustrations, which are actually real photographs from the mission, quotes from different team members, and a list of additional sources the reader can look into. The book shows young readers that astronauts are not the only ones responsible for going to space, it takes a dedicated and skilled crew to make each mission possible. The book is rather lengthy and would not be good for one sitting, however, it could be referred to throughout a unit on space exploration or a history research project. Students could also write or discuss what they imagine going to the moon would be like. ( )

This informative book is a great read. It is about everyone that is behind the scenes of making the Apollo 11 land on the moon. It is full of great pictures and would be great for 2nd or 3rd grade.

This chapter book is filled with facts about the Apollo 11 mission. The author explains to the reader how many hands went into this mission explaining why 400,000 people landed on the moon. It depicts every detail about this extraordinary mission including real pictures of the whole NASA crew. This book is great for children fourth to sixth grade. This book can be used in many ways. It can be used in history when children are learning about the missions to the moon or it can be used in ELA classes to introduce non-fiction books and informational text. ( )
