To The Moon and Back: My Apollo 11 Adventure: A Pop-Up Book by Buzz Aldrin with Marianne J. Dyson. National Geographic, 2018. $32. 9781426332494



Buzz Aldrin and friends have put together a fascinating interactive book about the Apollo 11 mission that finally got men to land and walk on the moon. While Armstrong is the most famous (we do love our “firsts” don’t we?), Aldrin, and their crewmate Collins were with him every step of that dangerous journey.

The text feels just right – any space hungry child will feel like they know enough from the reading. The pop-ups are spectacular! Of course I would be worried about this in a school setting – circulating it would be nail-biting. But if you have a class that talks about going to space and the moon, it would be great as a supplement. It also includes a 3-D model of the Lunar Module for assembly.
