This book may be 5 years old, but it is so good! It’s written as a poem. It’s short, but yet tells the story of the first moon landing so well. Just look what she did with the first and last page.
Here’s the first page: Hundreds gather Last page: Lunar mission
Hot July Reached new heights.
Spaceships ready Paved the way
Set to fly. For future flights.
As a writer, I was so amazed and impressed by how Linda could tell this story in few words. This book is perfect for young readers who love space!
Whenever I read or write, I find a comfy chair with a great view. I get my favorite drink, stretch out, and let the words take me away.
