From School Library Journal
"Gall uses approachable analogies to illuminate STEAM concepts, and an author’s note recalls Gall’s experience watching the moon landing as a child, further personalizing this edifying and heartfelt story." - Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"Gall balances densely explanatory pages with wide-angle scenes filled with tension and drama... Best of all, Gall’s young narrator shows how leaps of imagination can transform the grandest milestones into the most personal experiences." - The New York Times
"The final double-page spread is a stunning, vertiginous view of the boy's next generation of homemade rockets lifting off. A solid addition to the growing collection of fine volumes about Apollo 11." - Kirkus
"[Gall's] enthusiasm for rocketry shines brightly in loving attention to hardware detail in the art, with human participants rendered as merely necessary adjuncts. He manages to capture a bit of the Moon mania of 1969 and expand enthusiasm to a new audience in appended fun facts." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Recommended for science classes and school and public library collections." - School Library Journal
"The large trim size places the focus on the richly colored illustrations, which chart and diagram each phase of the journey and return. This will appeal...to the space and tech obsessed, but as the fiftieth anniversary of the moon landing arrives, anyone looking to experience the excitement of that time will have an interest." - Booklist

We all give this book all the stars!
We love Space books, anything moon landing, rocket ships, NASA, Space, Planets, Stars. We love it. My little boys are so inquisitive and they are always wanting to learn, this book was the perfect blend on educational and fun. They were learning without even realizing it.
This is an extremely large picture book, and the Illustrations are fabulous! The big pages are full of bright, vibrant photos, and my boys love laying on their bellies and flipping through the pages. What a great way to introduce kids to Neil Armstrong landing on the moon, and his first steps! I also really liked the fun facts in the back on the book, and on the inside flap, there was an image of Tang, I used to drink that by the gallon in the late 80’s. Loved that Throwback!
