Little ones will learn about the rocket Saturn V, the command module Columbia, and of course the famous lunar lander Eagle, and how they each served to send astronauts into space.
Kids will learn who the astronauts were and how they were chosen for the mission. And they’ll learn Neil Armstrong’s unforgettable words in his message back to Earth: “one giant leap for mankind.”
Fun facts about the astronauts’ space suits and their work in space round out this exciting picture book.
Series Overview: LITTLE GOLDEN BOOKS have been loved by children for more than 75 years. When they were first published in 1942, high-quality books for children hadn’t been available at a price most people could afford. Little Golden Books changed that! Priced at just 25 cents and sold where people shopped every day, they caused an instant sensation and were soon purchased by the hundreds of thousands.
Created by such talented writers as Margaret Wise Brown (author of Goodnight Moon) and Richard Scarry, Little Golden Books have helped millions of children develop a lifelong love of reading.
Today, Little Golden Books feature such beloved classics such as The Poky Little Puppyand Scuffy the Tugboat, hot licenses, and new original stories—the classics of tomorrow, ready to be discovered between their sturdy cardboard covers and gold-foil spines.
