"I Want to Go to the Moon" by Tom Saunders, Illustrated by Cynthia Nugent
I just adore this book. The message is wonderful and it is a lot of fun to get kids to sing along with it. Though it isn't the most accurate if you are using it to get information on Armstrong's life (who had a fascinating life by the way), the focus of I Want to Go to the Moon is really on making your own dreams come true. This is a must read for any child that needs inspiration or encouragement, and possibly some adults too. I look forward to the day when I can afford to buy every children's book that catches my eye and I know that this one will certainly be added to that collection!
