From the time he was two, Neil Armstrong was infatuated with flying. From watching airplane races to actually flying in one, Neil never tired of dreaming and thinking of flying, or of finding ways to fly. When he was sixteen, he got his pilot’s license. From there, he went on to become a navy fighter pilot, test pilot, and finally, what he is best known for, an astronaut. This is the story of Neil Armstrong, from his childhood to the moon landing. Told engagingly in story form with simple, amusing illustrations, this picture book is the perfect way to engage young children in American history.
