Product Description

Join astronaut Irwin for the ultimate adventure! As much a spiritual journey for Irwin as a scientific undertaking, his 1971 trip to the moon made history. In this vivid memoir, he recounts his boyhood, work as a test pilot, survival of a near-fatal crash, astronaut training, and his once-in-a-lifetime mission to Earth's satellite where God's loving presence filled the lunar landscape. Ages 10 to 12. 46 pages, hardcover.

Publisher's Description

When astronaut James Irwin gazed at the "blue planet," his home, from the moon in 1971, he realized that the experience was drawing him closer to the God of his youth. After the flight, Irwin realized "the power of God was working in me and I was possessed by a growing feeling that God did have a new mission for me."

    One of my favorite ways to teach science, especially for elementary ages, is to read biographies of scientists. There is something about reading these stories -- perseverance, dedication, commitment -- that makes the science the individuals are involved in so much more accessible and fascinating.

    I think as a read-aloud, this works for a range of ages. My five year old didn't much care, but my 10, 12 and nearly 14 year olds absolutely loved the book. The nearly 7 year old was intrigued as well, particularly loving the gorgeous photos.

    This autobiographical book was well-written, and compelling. Getting into the head of someone who actually walked on the moon was pretty incredible, even for me -- and I've never been particularly fascinated by all that space stuff.

    I highly, highly recommend this book. It is a keeper.
