My Review:

Getting children interested in history and historical figures is hard to do, especially in this day and age. Tory Locker presents the Inspiring Tales series featuring everyone from Ronald Reagan to Michael Jordan in an approachable way for kids.

In this book, we learn the life story of Neil Armstrong. Thanks to his mum, he developed a love for books and this love of reading helped him on the road to success. He loved reading about airplanes and wanted to be a pilot when he grew up. Little did he know he’d inspire the world with his flight to the moon.

Through colorful graphics/photographs and concise words, Tory Locker brings an American hero’s dreams and achievements to life. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was in fact inspired, like I was back in grade school when learning about Neil Armstrong. Kids will love it as will adults.

I believe Tory Locker has done a magnificent job combining a historical figure like Neil Armstrong and inspiring kids to go where no one has gone before. I was inspired and I’m middle-aged. Lol! So, this book is also inspiring to adults too. A great teaching tool for either schools or homeschooling.

Favorite Character/Quote: “There is nothing more… that can make you feel alive, if you are ready… when your big chance arrives.”

My Rating: 5 stars
