Voyage to the Moon
A different kind of travel is depicted in MOONSHOT : the Flight of Apollo 11, a nonfiction picture book by Brian Floca.
What did the astronauts experience?
SAMPLE: "Onboard Columbia and Eagle, Armstrong, Collins, Aldrin unclick gloves, unclick helmets, unclick the straps that hold them down, and float inside their small ships, their home for a week."
This repetition is very effective. Everybody is familiar with the unclicking of seatbelts in cars. The reader can relate to this.
For a summer activity Brian Floca has provided coloring pages from MOONSHOT.
