This is the amazingly awesome Astronaut loving little brother taking over the blog to share about two Astronaut books.
The First Men Who went to the Moon is about space and the first lunar landing. It talks about their prep, landing and how people reacted. There are Moon facts in the book too.
This book would be good for kids who want to learn about space and going to the Moon. This year is the 50th anniversary of the moon landing so now would be a good time to learn about it. Second grade classes could use this book! I read it by myself!
The Astronaut who painted the moon is about Alan Bean. He was the fourth man to land on the moon. He was also an artist. When he got back to Earth, he painted what he saw on the moon.
This would be a good book for art classes to talk about the moon landings. Mom says it is also a good way to show how you can use art to share an experience. I think this book would be good in classes.
The two books go together really well. I am adding them to my space shelf with the book by Buzz Aldrin! I like space and hope to go one day.
Last year I met an Astronaut when we were at Kennedy Space Center.
