The Moon’s First Friends is a “lesson” on our changing earth and its occupants, told through the eyes of a lonely Moon. Author Susanna Leonard Hill, combined with Elisa Paganelli’s colorful illustrations, cleverly teaches kids about eclipses, phases of the Moon, gravity and finally components of the historic Apollo 11 space voyage – the rocket, its astronauts and their space suits. The Moon finally has some visitors! And readers will get an extra bonus – scan the two QR codes to listen to the actual countdown and to hear Armstrong’s first words on the Moon! A terrific commemorative to one of the greatest events in American history.— Mindy
