Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Buzz Aldrin takes readers on a journey through the history of space exploration.

As one of a handful of astronauts to have walked on the moon, Buzz Aldrin has a unique perspective of space. And he serves as an amazing guide as he introduces us to the pioneers of space. From Copernicus to the Wright brothers, from the Apollo program to dreams of future travel, he reminds us that mankind has always looked to the stars.

Buzz's informative, kid-friendly text is paired with beautifully detailed illustrations by renowned illustrator Wendell Minor, and offers the perfect introduction to everything space related, including the development of the first rockets, America?s space race with Russia, details of all the Apollo missions, and the space station.

Aldrin and Minor collaborated on the bestselling Reaching for the Moon and now they reach beyond that book to give young readers a concise look at the whole history of space exploration. Each spread provides a wonderful jumping-off point for young readers, and will no doubt inspire them to look to the stars themselves.

 

About the Author

Buzz Aldrin was an Apollo 11 astronaut, one of the first two men to walk on the moon. He received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, founded a rocket design company, Starcraft Boosters, Inc., and created the ShareSpace Foundation, a nonprofit organization devoted to opening the doors to space tourism for all people. His Reaching for the Moon (illustrated by Wendell Minor) was a New York Times bestseller.

Wendell Minor has traveled all over the U.S. to research his art for numerous picture books. He is also the illustrator of the New York Times bestseller Ghost Ship, by Mary Higgins Clark. His paintings are in the permanent collections of the Norman Rockwell Museum, the Museum of American Illustration, the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Coast Guard, and NASA.
