Format: Paperback
I had purchased this book some months ago. Last week my son needed to do a timeline project for his third grade class. I pulled this book off the shelf and we read it together. The book has some very interesting facts about Neil's life. Once you read the book, you will understand why NASA chose Neil for Apollo 11. The illustrations are in black and white but they are good and very useful for the flow of the story. There are some very helpful diagrams that explain the Saturn V rocket and the Apollo 11 mission. And guess what? There's a timeline in the back of the book! (I didn't let my son see it.) When my son did an oral presentation of his timeline, the teacher was amazed about how much my son knew about Armstrong's life. She said the other students were on the edge of their seats. The book also has some interesting short diversions about the Wright Brothers, Charles Lindbergh, the Korean War, and the loss of the Apollo 1 astronauts. This is a great book for young readers! Adults who are interested in space exploration will also enjoy the book.

This a great a book on Neil Armstrong. I recommend it beyond the age group stated. It is well illustrated and well written. There was a lot I did not know about Neil. Not that I have studied much about him. I'm a fan of flying, and just wanted a quick read on an historic figure cause my history knowledge is flimsy. I recommend it for anyone really old and young who just want a glimpse into history without extras or viewpoints of the writers; which is wonderful. The illustrations are black and white, but if a kid or teen wants to they can color them in just as fine as a coloring book. Mine will most likely stay black and white. The cool thing is that they have the paths to the moon illustrated, the Saturn V and Spacesuits with names of what their main parts. A good source for those doing unit studies and need something short and informative too.

My son loved this book; full of facts about Neil Armstrong and his life and accomplisments. We really liked all the diagrams of the Saturn V, the spacesuit, the route to the moon and back; they all gave a good idea of how things work.

I bought this book for a great-grandson as a source for his final English project. It is definitely informative in a very young reader way.
It brought a lot of detail to the surface that the formal biographies eliminate. I think it helped him relate that his project wasn't just an old person who died; that person was young once and had dreams that led to his success. I liked it for the purpose it was purchased.

Format: Paperback
When my daughter had to read a biography for a class project, we explored several possibilities, but I was secretly tickled when she selected Neil Armstrong.

The book is really well-written for school-aged children with concise chapters, interesting facts, relevant pictures, and several boxed comments to provide additional facts on related topics (such as the X-15 rocket plane, breaking the sound barrier, and the Sputnik).

The book covers Mr. Armstrong's life from childhood, followed the course of his career through stints as a Navy pilot, flying in the Korean war, serving as a test pilot, becoming an astronaut, being the first man on the moon, and finally teaching at a university. It also covers his personal life.

I thought I already knew quite a bit about Neil Armstrong, but both my daughter and I learned from this book!
