T-50 Years of Apollo 11

Article Type: 

A year-long celebration has begun marking the approach of the 50 year anniversary of Apollo 11’s landing on the moon, and the famous words that Neil Armstrong uttered, “That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.” As the entire country sat riveted to their televisions, watching the grainy footage from the surface of the moon, America seemed invincible. A plaque was planted on the lunar surface that reads, “Here Men From Planet Earth First Set Foot Upon The Moon July 1969, A.D. We Came in Peace For All Mankind.”

The moon landing opened up the next frontier of exploration for the United States, as we landed a dozen Americans on the moon between July 1969 and December 1972. To mark this historic endeavor, there are books, documentaries, movies and celebrations coming out in the coming months chronicling the brave and adventurous men and women who made this all possible. Kids especially are fascinated by this time in history, and we have a great selection of children’s space books on our shelves. Here are just a few:
