This is a fun, encouraging story about a boy who refuses to give up his dreams despite everyone telling him that they're unattainable. Of course, he proves them wrong, but it's all in the telling. The verse/lyrics (a CD is included with the book) is catchy and the watercolours are gorgeous. This book makes me want to go to the moon, too.

This is the fictional story of Neil Armstrong. Neil is a boy with a dream - from a very young age, he wants to go to the moon, but everyone around him discourages him because his dream is too big, too audacious, has never been done. They mean well, they don't want him to be disappointed, but Neil will not be talked out of his dream. He studies the subjects necessary, takes menial jobs when necessary, works hard and keeps his dream close.

This is really a sweet book, encouraging yet simple. It is
