I love learning about space and the NASA program. Destination: Moon is a great option for anyone who likes history and learning about the space age. This book is kind of like a timeline. It starts with the beginning of the space race back in the late 1950s and concludes with Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin returning from their landing on the moon. It is 56 pages long and full of tons of facts, pictures, and loads of things I’ve never heard before. It also acknowledges people who weren’t given the spotlight at the time, like the African-American women who worked behind the scenes as the human computers of the early space missions. The illustrations in this book are all photographs and there are lots of them. My favorite part of this book is when it named Buzz Aldrin as the first man to urinate on the moon! He was live on television when it happened! I recommend this book for kids ages 7 and up who enjoy science, space, or history.
