I had mixed feelings about this book, the writing was very engaging but there was a lot more than I thought there'd be. It was also hard to tell how much was factual and how much was made up for the story towards the beginning of the book because as it got more fact-based did it start to lose its pace. The illustrations were what kept it so captivating towards the end. ( )

This is the story of Neil Armstrong, a boy who loved airplanes and who, with courage and perseverance, took many small steps that led to the one giant leap of man’s first step on the moon.

The fifteenth offering in the “Ordinary People Change the World” series from Dial Books for Young Readers, this biography will inspire youngsters to dream . . . and to work to make their dreams come true. Filled with delightful illustrations to accompany the many facts related to space exploration and the historic Apollo 11 mission, this book encourages young readers to explore, to work hard, to be brave and patient . . . because every journey begins with a first step.

Following the narrative, readers will find a timeline of events accompanied by selected photographs, a listing of source materials, and further reading suggestions for kids.

Highly recommended. ( )
