Neil Armstrong's journey to the moon is the focus of the 15th picture book in the New York Times bestselling series of biographies about heroes, for ages 5 to 8. (Cover may vary)
Neil Armstrong is the first person to ever walk on the moon. But before he took those famous steps, he was a boy who loved airplanes. He learned how to fly, and when the space race began, he became a new kind of pilot: an astronaut. Now he could fly all the way to outer space. With bravery and patience, Neil and his team worked hard and, after many small steps, they took a giant leap together. They landed their lunar module on the moon, and Neil Armstrong knew that every journey begins with a first step.
