Rocket to the Moon!
Rocket to the Moon! | Don Brown
5 posts | 2 read | 1 to read
On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong took "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" when the Apollo 11 landed on the moon. But it wasn't just one man who got us to the moon. The Moon Landing explores the people and technology that made the moon landing possible. Instead of examining one person's life, it focuses on the moon landing itself, showing the events leading up to it and how it changed the world. The book takes readers through the history of rocket building: from ancient Chinese rockets, to "bombs bursting in air" during the War of 1812, to Russia's Sputnik program, to the moon landing. Beautifully illustrated and well-researched, this book is the perfect resource for curious readers and tomorrow's scientists. It includes a timeline of space travel, a bibliography, and an index.

Rocket to the Moon is a non fiction book that uses a comic style of writing which is appealing to young children. It also uses some humor within the factual text.

I would use this book in my classroom because it tells a great story about rockets and it also uses a comic style of writing which I think would be appealing to children around the first-second grades.

I‘m starting this middle grade nonfiction book to review. It will be the first in a “Big Ideas” series.

And it‘s still snowing! School is already cancelled for tomorrow. ❄️ ⛄️
