Burleigh, Robert

One Giant Leap

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Mike Wimmer. This picture book collaboration successfully captures the tension, excitement, and national pride as Armstrong and Aldrin descend the ladder of the Eagle onto the surface of the moon. Wimmer's rich oils and broad palette provide spot-on drama for Burleigh's poetic text. An author's note underscores the achievement and its history while speculating about future space exploration.
