A heartwarming story about a girl witnessing the moon landing. What I found interesting when I finished the book was that the author is actually white and Pinkney's illustrations are what made it a story about a black family, hence the CSK illustrator award (honor?). It just goes to show that some stories transcend ethnic background. Anyway, it's not just about the moon landing, it also shows how the girl relates to her grandfather. The art is really beautiful and while it isn't an informational book per se, it could be used along with non-fiction books in a unit about space exploration.
