The author of this series does a terrific job of finding little people with big dreams. Each entry offers children an introduction to a person who once was young, followed a dream and achieved something that they very much wanted.
This time the profile is of astronaut, Neil Armstrong. What could be a bigger dream than leaving earth behind for space? How did he get from childhood to this incredible adventure? Young readers and listeners will enjoy finding out how, starting at age 6 and eventually leading to becoming the first to take a step on the moon.
The illustrations will add to a child’s experience with this book. They do such a fine job of showing space.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto-Frances Lincoln Children’s Books for this title. All opinions are my own.
