[Man in Space to the Moon is a] brief history of man's wonder and dreams of travel to the moon, space travel from Sputnik I to Apollo, and detailed description of the flight to the moon by Apollo 11. Much of the information is a straight repeat of what the fifth or sixth grader has already seen during TV coverage of the moon flights, but here and there the author makes some excellent points…. This book will give the child a good summary of what has happened—he should find the list of all manned space craft interesting—and should inspire the imagination of the curious. I believe every public and grade school library should have this. (pp. 7-8)
