My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Review:

Armstrong: The Adventurous Journey of a Mouse to the Moon by Torben Kuhlmann was a beautifully illustrated children's book that will be great for children as an introduction to space travel, or just a fun story featuring a cleaver and determined mouse who would not give up on his dreams. The book, with the amazing illustrations, will be great read to a group of children by an adult, or read independently for children who have been reading on their own for a while.

I am well past childhood, but I was completely sucked in by the beautiful illustrations. Many children love learning about space travel and this book with the combination of space and a great little mouse character is completely captivating. There is also factual information about human space travel at the end of the book.

I love that the clever little mouse is determined to follow through with his dreams even though his peers do not offer him any support, just as many humans throughout history done. The best way for children to learn is often through a creative story that they truly enjoy. I was given this book free for the purpose of providing an honest review.


BOOK DESCRIPTION:

A long time ago a mouse learned to fly . . . and crossed the Atlantic. But what happened next? Torben Kuhlmann's stunning new book transports readers to the moon and beyond! On the heels of Lindbergh: The Tale of a Flying Mouse comes Armstrong: A Mouse on the Moon where dreams are determined only by the size of your imagination and the biggest innovators are the smallest of all. The book ends with a brief non-fiction history of human space travel from Galileo's observations concerning the nature of the universe to man's first steps on the moon."
