Great addition to the classroom's children's library.

Children can rapidly expand their knowledge and intellect through reading and of course the books they start with have to be interesting and fun to read.

Spacebusters is the very best book I have ever read. It is the true story about the first people on the moon! Once you read this book, even if you read it a thousand times, it will still surprise you This book takes me out of this world. I learned a lot from this book, like did you know what Neil Armstrong described the moon as? So if you like space and are interested in history, I recommend this book to you!

I am a strong advocate to teaching children to read. Children can rapidly expand their knowledge and intellect through reading and of course the books they start with have to be interesting and fun to read.

The DK series of books provides an excellent training platform for you to help your kids to learn to read and enjoy it. The books are available in 5 levels that are designed to help your children start to read and learn. The levels are:

Pre-level 1: Learning to read
Level 1: Beginning to read
Level 2: Beginning to read alone
Level 3: Reading alone
Level 4: Proficient readers

This book is a level three book.

One of the things that makes this book so good is that it a great story and it is of important historical importance. It is also an interesting topic that many children have an interest in. Who doesn't dream of space travel and learning of the first mission to the moon is exciting.

The book is well written and full of details of the mission that even I was unaware of or had forgotten. To top that off the book contains spectacular photographs and artwork that is professionally done. The overall quality of the book is top notch. The photographs add to the storyline and enhance the experience of learning about the first mission to the moon.

After the story is over there is a continuation of the following years of the history of space exploration. I always like that this series of books has a Glossary at the end that helps to teach and improve the foundation of learning and vocabulary for your children. Interesting details are always covered.

This is an excellent book and I recommend it. I enjoyed reading it myself. I was able to download this book from my local library to my Kindle Fire. You should consider this as an excellent way to add reading materials for your child.
