His companion, the photographer, and their landing craft are reflected in his visor. This photograph, taken by Neil Armstrong of fellow astronaut Buzz Aldrin, is the most famous documentation of America's 1969 moon landing. But to people in every country on Earth, it represented and still does so much more. The man in the photograph was hundreds of thousands of miles away from his home planet. He had conquered another world. It was, as Armstrong said, a giant leap for mankind. The photo of this historic event remains one of the most powerful and inspiring representations of the achievements of humankind.

    I just finished teaching this book - using it as one part of a larger nonfiction unit on space exploration - and it is SO PERFECT for classroom use. Really, the whole "How a Photograph..." series is. The chapters are short enough to easily cover one a day. The photographs are stunning. And the book works beautifully to teach informational text features, context clues, text structure, main idea and details, development of ideas, and so much more! Bonus... the students really enjoyed reading the b I just finished teaching this book - using it as one part of a larger nonfiction unit on space exploration - and it is SO PERFECT for classroom use.

    The book is called ''How a photograph made anything seem possible,MAN ON THE MOON''.It was written by Pamela Dell,I am pretty sure it's a non-fiction,because it has realistic picture and sayings...The book talks about a trip to the moon with Neil Armstrong,Micheal Collins,and Buzz Aldrin. The book talk how to get ready for a trip to the moon and what to do when you get there.It talk about what they do in a spacecraft.It also talk about a dog that went in space and survived there.It sais about Joh The book is called ''How a photograph made anything seem possible,MAN ON THE MOON''.It was written by Pamela Dell,I am pretty sure it's a non-fiction,because it has realistic picture and sayings...The book talks about a trip to the moon with Neil Armstrong,Micheal Collins,and Buzz Aldrin. The book talk how to get ready for a trip to the moon and what to do when you get there.It talk about what they do in a spacecraft.It also talk about a dog that went in space and survived there.It sais about John F. Kennedy's dream of knowing that he would like for the Americas to be the first men to go in space. I liked this book a lot because it tells us a lot of things that I didn't know that happend in space,and how John Kennnedy died before the first men to go in space went in space.I also liked how much details it told me,Pamela Dell must have had a lot of information because it talk a lot about on subject.I liked a lot of things about this book but I also disliked how there was still some things after reading the book that i was still wondering about space.I liked the ending because it ends with a time line which make us get some more ideas on what major things happends. I think that the book was a little bit too short because there is a lot mor to space.But it is a pretty big subject to talk about and I think that if it was a little bit longer pamela could have covered a little more about space,and the trips,and everything that spacecraft has to contain to go in space. ''Though this was the firs manned American space mission,Shepard's flight was jot spectacularr as Gagarin's.Shepard's spacecraft never orbited Earth.It simply took a 15-minute flight 116 miles(187km)up into the atmosphere and returned''.I liked this passage because I know that it is a very dangerous job but there is still a competitin going on.

    Part of the Captured History series, this title focuses on astronaut Neil Armstrong's iconic photograph of Buzz Aldrin standing on the Moon in 1960. The book contains all sorts of photographs from the time period as well as a discussion of chnages that were made in the photograph to make it more attractive. Although the two astronauts were the first humans to set foot on the Moon, the photograph represents the almost-limitless possibilities for humans in the future and serves as a reminder of wh Part of the Captured History series, this title focuses on astronaut Neil Armstrong's iconic photograph of Buzz Aldrin standing on the Moon in 1960.

Although the two astronauts were the first humans to set foot on the Moon, the photograph represents the almost-limitless possibilities for humans in the future and serves as a reminder of what we can do when we put enough effort behind our ambitions. I liked how the book also included a brief discussion about the naysayers who remain convinced that the photo was staged, and the lunar landing never happened. The author makes sure to include background information about the space program, all of which is interesting, but sometimes the book seems to lose its focus briefly.

    Genre: Non-fiction Target Audience: 3-6 grade Why I chose to pair "Superman: an origin story" by Matthew K. Manning & Luciano Vecchio. -I chose to pair "Superman: an origin story" with Man on the Moon book, because a little kid reading a book about space may be able to easily relate it to Superman, or other superheroes. The nonfiction book may be geared towards higher elementary education, because it has more words per page and more things to read.

    I am really liking this Captured History series...where an iconic photograph lends itself to a closer examination of the event in history. Some people even think this photo is of Neil Armstrong, instead of the actual case...a photo taken by Armstrong of fellow moonwalker, Buzz Aldrin. It was also interesting that the book included information about the naysayers who to this day feel the photo was doctored and we did not make it to the moon.

    I'm not entirely sure of the audience. It's a good introductory to the space race and Apollo 11, but there's a lot about the photo. Probably useful for a kid doing homework/research into space or photography. I'm not entirely sure of the audience.
