One Giant Leap
by Robert Burleigh & Mike Wimmer

Told in short, near-poetic verses and illustrated with attractive impressionistic paintings, the retelling is dramatic and "the sense of immediacy is irresistible." (School Library Journal)

The story of the first moon landing, told in "distinguished language and compelling imagery" (School Library Journal). We particularly liked the unusual perspectives in the illustrations. Really heightens the drama!

For teachers looking for books on space for kids, "this simple, clear, and attractively illustrated book is a great place to begin." (Booklist)

Interest Level: Grade 1-3             Lexile Measure: 470L
