Saturday, July 20, 2019 will mark the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing. A great book that explores one of our space station greatest accomplishments is Brian Floca’s Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11. Floca is the author and illustrator of Locomotive, winner of the 2013 Caldecott Medal. It comes as no surprise that the images in Moonshot are unique to his style and very detailed. He uses art to explore Apollo 11’s legendary moon landing. There are details about the spacecraft’s that were built and used. The book also explores the science and technology used to make the moon landing a success. Overall, the book is jam-packed with historical facts in simplified language. Fun fact, it’s also a perfect tie in to our summer reading theme A Universe of Stories.
