Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Footprints on the Moon by Alexandra Siy uses crisp, clear photographs and archival drawings to trace man's early fascination with the celestial sphere (including Stonehenge and Galileo), through to Buzz Aldrin's titular first steps and speculation about other destinations, such as Mars. ( Feb.)
Copyright 2001 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

Gr 3-6-This outstanding look at our venture to the Moon combines a generous array of full-color photos with lively, if concise, descriptions of the Apollo Program, its predecessors, and the early history of rocketry. A look at the Moon's face in different phases gives way to portraits of Galileo and Robert Goddard's homemade-looking rocket, followed by shots of astronauts posing in and out of their massive spacesuits. Artists' conceptions of futuristic lunar colonies, a composite look at the other planets on our upcoming itinerary, and, finally, a parting view of a dusty, desolate moonscape round out the presentation. Siy binds the illustrations together with summary accounts of several of those long-ago Apollo missions, adding salient details and humorous comments made by the astronauts. Readers with an interest in these dramatic events will welcome the lists of books and Web sites at the end. A wildly exaggerated claim for the magnifying power of Galileo's telescope aside, this title ably captures both the magnitude of the technological achievement, and, even more strongly than Mary Ann Fraser's One Giant Leap (Holt, 1995), that heady feeling of going where none had gone before.-John Peters, New York Public Library

My 5 year old loves verything space. He loves looking up at the moon and was asking all kinds of questions about it. This book was great and he really liked looking at the pictures in it and learning about the moon and the astronauts that went there. His favorite pictures were the ones taken from the moon of earth though. He thought it was the coolest thing to be able to see earth that way.

This is a great book that gives you a real feeling of the excitement of the space race and how exciting it was to land on the moon. I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this book.

I always associated Vivaldi with the famous Four Seasons. Now I know he is much, much more! Marvelous music!
