Summary, etc.:
"On-point historical photographs combined with strong narration bring the story of the moon landing to life. Kids will learn about the cold war tensions between the US and the USSR that led to the space race, and the push from presidents Kennedy and Johnson to ensure the U.S. got to the moon first. As an added bonus, readers will learn about how this played out on TV. All of the networks covered it, but Walter Cronkite and astronaut Wally Shirra are there to narrate how it happened with real excitement. Accompanying video will show readers what viewers saw at the time"-- Provided by publisher.
