21st July

Yesterday, the 20th July was the anniversary of the First Moon Landing. The Apollo II landing occurred in 1969 and to the children of today, probably it does not feel like the big deal it was for my generation of children. However there are many wonderful books that tell this story in pictures and texts that are very accessible to young children. Look for these factual texts:
Reaching For the Moon by Buzz Aldrin and Wendell Minor
Moonshot by Brian Floca
The following are stories about going to the moon:
Grandpa Take Me to the Moon by Timothy R. Gaffney and Barry Root
Footprints on the Moon by Mark Haddon and Christian Birmingham
• The Sea of Tranquility by Mark Haddon and Christian Birmingham
If You Decide to Go to the Moon by Faith McNulty and Steven Kellog
I Wish I'd Gone to the Moon with Neil Armstrong by Leonie Young and Avril Janks
