Product Description


“The book’s scrapbook format invites readers to explore the concepts, technologies and personal stories behind manned space flight . . . . Big fun.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Chock-full of facts, photographs, illustrations and memorabilia that take a distant voyage and bring it close.” —The Washington Post

“A tremendous amount of information is enthusiastically presented; topics include fictional accounts of space travel, the space race, the Apollo/Saturn V, the Apollo 11 astronauts, the mission launch, landing and exploration of the Moon, the return to Earth, subsequent space missions, and future possibilities.” —School Library Journal

“Packed with interactive components, this tribute to the Apollo 11 mission is a mock scrapbook penned by a 12-year-old space enthusiast.” —Publishers Weekly

“Kids will be drawn into the drama of the historic event and may be enticed into starry dreams of their own by closing glimpses of planned near-future expeditions to the Moon and to Mars.” —Kirkus Reviews

Get up close to an out of this world experience. Jan. 6 2010
By Mary from Michigan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my great-nephew who turned five a few months ago. His mom tells me that he loves everything to do with astronauts and space ships. Me too! I think astronauts are very brave, just imagine going up in a spaceship and it's shaking so hard you feel like a ping pong ball as it rises off the launch pad and engines are super LOUD. This book tells the reader all about being an astronaut, you know they have to study really hard so they know what to do when they get into space. Whew! What I especially liked about this book were the little surprises tucked between the pages, such as a menu. What do you think astronauts like to eat? An alligator? No I don't think alligators are on the menu. What would you like, a moonshake?

My great-nephew and I hope you enjoy this book too.
Remarkable book: Looks and feels like a real scrapbook Feb. 12 2010

When someone showed me a copy, I wanted to give one to every young person I knew. This book is endearing as well as educational. The 3-D elements are amazing--inserts of event tickets, press passes and notes are all made to look like it is a true scrapbook put together by a youngster whose Granddad and Mother worked in the space program--which is its basis. Adults will be thrilled with it and be reeducated on the historic events with this front-row seat. The most amazing thing is that this book could be assembled and then offered at such a reasonable price! I gave it to my 11-year-old niece just as her class began to study the space program. Her whole family loves the book. Can't say enough about it!
A very nice book Dec 2 2013

This is a winner!
I first came across this book at Big Lots. it is a delightful scrap book style Commerative that is very cleverly done.
It has fascimilies of menus, passes, photos and post cards all related to the first walk on the moon.
it is almost as interesting to explore this book as it would be to explore the moon itself.
My grandson gifted his copy to a retiring school teacher who loves everything about the space peogram.
She had never seen anything like it. She loved it!
I then ordered a copy from Amazon to re[lace the one he had given away.
Good, but not what I expected... Jan. 5 2013

The book is a nice compilation of pictures, facts and memories from the Apollo days. There's a lot to look at and the bits of information are interesting. That said, I think this book is more for kids than adults and I didn't realize that before buying. I should have researched it more, so that's my fault. But it's a great overall look at the most fantastic voyage ever undertaken.

This book captures a lot of the nostalgia of the USA's finest hour. Perfect for kids who are interested in reality rather than video games.Brings back memories from my childhood when I believed in America and when anything was possible.
