Description

Introduce kids to the people and engineering behind the race to the Moon!

Before the missions were over, NASA astronauts had made 11 Apollo flights, 6 of which landed on the moon. It was stressful, but it was also fun. The crews never missed a chance to enjoy the trip or pull off a prank 240,000 miles from home.

The Apollo Missions for Kids tells the story of this pivotal moment in space exploration from the perspective of those who lived it. You will hear from the astronauts and their families, the controllers and engineers, and the technicians and politicians. These people made the impossible possible!

*This book also includes 21 activities for kids!
