From the Publisher: In July 1969, the world witnessed an awe-inspiring historical achievement when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on the moon. For the young protagonist of this lyrical and hopeful picture book, that landing is something that inspires her to make one giant step toward all of the possibilities that life has to offer. Caldecott Honor-winning painter Jerry Pinkney and the poetic Dianna Hutts Aston create a moving tribute to the historic Apollo 11 Mission, just in time to commemorate its upcoming fortieth anniversary.

A very good story of the EAGLE landing on the moon and man's first footstep on the surface of the moon . Young Mae's 8 year old experience with that great accomplishment . Enjoyable and very good story.

While not promoted as a biography - Aston and Pinkney's recollection of the first moon landing in 1969 could very well be a recollection of Mae Jemison - the first African-American woman accepted into the NASA astronaut program. The experience recounted echoes my own family experience on that amazing night so many years ago.
