A nice book meant for children to introduce them to the fantastic Apollo missions. I was a youngster when they were happening and when I saw that this book included many paintings by one of the Apollo astronauts (Alan Bean), I had to give it a look. I've seen some of Bean's work before and quite enjoy his unique perspectives and reflections on Apollo through his paintings. His captions tell a lot, too. Don't forget to check out the page in the back where Bean discusses the materials and methods he uses to create his paintings. It's truly unique because only a moonwalker like him would, cleverly, have access to a special ingredient or two that he adds to his works that nobody else can do.

Apollo 11 was the first time humans landed on the moon, but without the earlier Apollo missions, it would not have been possible. Subsequent missions expanded our knowledge of the moon. This title is illustrated with paintings by astronaut Alan Bean, the fourth man to walk on the moon, as well as photographs.
