Team Moon: How 400,000 people landed Apollo 11 on the Moon by Catherine Thimmesh

Team Moonit’s 1969 and man has not yet set foot on the moon.  But all that changes on  July 20 1969.  Team Moon: How 400,000 People Landed Apollo 11 on the Moon describes in words and pictures how man finally reached and landed on the moon.  This work tells in simple  language and style all of the work and  effort of the people that were involved with Apollo 11 to make its mission successful.  Lots of pictures help to show the reader what it was like  from the beginning of the Apollo 11 mission to its end.  Though perhaps not as exciting as a book on the Space shuttle or future space exploration, this work represents one of the best works on Apollo 11 that is suitable for a wide age range of children.
