Neil Armstrong's journey to the moon is the focus of the 15th picture book in the New York Times bestselling series of biographies about heroes, for ages 5 to 8. (Cover may vary)

This friendly, fun biography series focuses on the traits that made our heroes great—the traits that kids can aspire to in order to live heroically themselves. Each book tells the story of one of America's icons in a lively, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers and that always includes the hero's childhood influences. At the back are an excellent timeline and photos. This volume tells the story of Neil Armstrong from his childhood on a farm to a career as an engineer and pilot and how he became the first person on the moon. All of the small steps he took in life—even his failures—led up to his steps on the moon.
This friendly, fun biography series inspired the PBS Kids TV show Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum. One great role model at a time, these books encourage kids to dream big.
Included in each book are:    
  • A timeline of key events in the hero’s history  
  • Photos that bring the story more fully to life  
  • Comic-book-style illustrations that are irresistibly adorable  
  • Childhood moments that influenced the hero  
  • Facts that make great conversation-starters   
  • A virtue this person embodies: Neil Armstrong's teamwork will help kids see the value in working together 
You’ll want to collect each book in this dynamic, informative series!
