Description

This inspiring picture book tells the amazing story of the first moon landing and the friends who made it happen.

Neil, Buzz, and Mike were three talented people and together, they formed the Apollo 11 crew. They were going to be the first people to travel to the moon! It was a thrilling, exciting mission that no one had ever done before.

Each member of the team had a very special job and their own part to play. Neil was the flight commander, Mike was the pilot of the main spacecraft, and Buzz piloted the lunar module to the moon’s surface. As they trained, lived, worked, and played together, they formed a bond that was out of this world.

Follow their once-in-a-lifetime trip to the moon, see a giant leap made for mankind, and witness the incredible teamwork it took to get there.

Friends Change the World is a series of picture books that celebrates the power of friendship. From musical greats to sports champions, scientists and explorers to artists and activists, these are the true stories of real friends who achieved amazing things. Whether best friends since school or thrown together by a chance encounter, they supported and inspired each other to make their shared dreams come true. This charming series shows 4- to 7-year-olds how togetherness, respect, and friendship can make the world a better place.
