Moonshot - Brian Floca

Forty years ago this summer, on July 20, 1969 at 4:17 p.m. EDT, the whole world watched TV with anticipation. “Then…there! Clean and flat, not too far!/ Sixty seconds left! Armstrong fires the rockets./ Eagle slows and lower goes until a spray of dust,/ a bloom of moon, flowers up around her…landing!” Brian Floca’s (Racecar Alphabet, Lightship) new book Moonshot (Atheneum, $17.99) captures in detailed illustrations and beautiful prose the momentous day of Apollo 11’s landing on the moon. Ages 5 up.
