Team Moon
How 400,000 People Landed Apollo 11 on the Moon
by Catherine Thimmesh

How difficult was it to land a man on the moon? Why did it take 400,000 people working together to complete the mission? Team Moon will take you back to 1969 and the years before the launch to introduce you to some of the people who made our first moon walk possible.

With a high-level, technical vocabulary in Team Moon, we recommend it be read aloud in small groups to facilitate discussion and study of the astounding photographs.
