Large format well-illustrated book. Many illustrations span two facing pages. Some illustrations include insets. Hits some highlights of the history of flight and of space travel, then discusses the future and Aldrin's hoped-for future, the mission to Mars.

Clearly Aldrin came from aeronautical royalty, with a father who was an Air Force pilot and acquainted with Charles Lindbergh. Aldrin studied with Robert Goddard.

This is an excellent book, packing a lot of drama into its few pages. The illustration of Sputnik is especially nice. The illustrations of the various space capsules with astronauts beside them to show the scale are kind of scary. It would have been nice to see a similar scale astronaut in the ISS picture. The timeline at the end intersperses events events in aviation and space exploration with more personal things, like the birth of Aldrin's father.

The timeline and the text do not ignore women's presence in the history of aviation and in space. ( )

The message in this book is informing students of landing on the moon. I really enjoyed reading this book because it was very informative. I like how the book started out explaining why Buzz Aldrin was interested in space. For example, he explained how he was interested in learning about things such as Isaac Newton inventing the telescope. Another reason I liked this book was at the end of the story there was a timeline, which I know helps me visually understand the time span of when things occured in history. ( )

This is another great informational book for children to read. The book does not only focus on one astronaut, or one mission to the moon or space, instead it gives back stories and information to help the reader better understand the massive feats that have been conquered by many great Americans. The book is divided into chapters, and even has a table of contents, but the majority of each page is filled with drawings and images that correlate to the text, which make the reading more enjoyable, as well as easier to make sense of the text. The timeline at the end is also a great tool for the students to use to connect all the events they just read into one graphic organizer. ( )

Buzz Aldrin Look to the Stars:
Buzz Aldrin takes you through time travel in great detail. In this book he describes the first flight, telescope, and rockets. As well, he describes the important space missions that have gone on through history. Aldrin takes readers on his journey through the history of space exportation. He serves as an amazing guide as he introduces the reader to the pioneers of space. Buzz’s kid-friendly text is paired with beautiful illustrations by Wendell Minor. As the book goes on he takes us through everything including the development of the first rockets, America’s space race with Russia, and details of all the Apollo missions as well as the space stations. The reading level for this book, is ages 4-8 and appropriate for grades K-3. The science concept of space is very accurate through this book. This would be a great book to introduce the concept of space to young children.

Buzz Aldrin takes you through a time travel in good detail. In this book he describes the first telescope, flight, and rockets. Through the book he describes the important space missions that have gone on through history. He leaves this book by describing what is possible for the future.

There's no doubt about Aldrin's passion for his subject nor his very specialized firsthand knowledge. And as always Minor's paintings are attractive and detailed. Still this follow-up to Reaching for the Moon (2005) feels like an unnecessary addendum rather than a useful and intriguing supplement. The author offers an overview of space exploration, beginning with the contributions of Copernicus, Galileo and Newton and segueing into the work of the Wright brothers, Edwin Hubble and Robert Goddard. Brief descriptions of various NASA missions follow. His personal commentary offers a unique twist, but the brevity of the presentation-a double-page spread for each topic, the first few featuring multiple individuals-may leave readers feeling confused and overwhelmed rather than enlightened. A timeline helps to sort out the sequence of events, and its thumbnail illustrations serve as a sort of visual index, but even here there appears to be too much information squeezed into too small a space. More inspirational than informational, this may please aspiring space explorers but has the potential to leave many listeners in the dark. (Nonfiction. 7-9)

Gr 2-4

The Apollo 11 astronaut follows up Reaching for the Moon (HarperCollins, 2005) with a quick overview of the past and near future of human space flight. Paired with Minor's clean-lined, realistically detailed scenes of significant aircraft, spacecraft, and high spots, his narrative opens with Galileo, closes with the rousing suggestion that the opportunity to venture into space lies just a tantalizing few years down the road for many young readers, and in between provides a fact-laced history, capped by a complete tally of Apollo missions and a look at planned expeditions to Mars. Aldrin adds a personal slant to his commentary-noting, for instance, that his aviator father was trained by Robert Goddard and was a friend of Charles Lindbergh. It distinguishes this survey from other titles that cover similar territory and should leave readers with a clearer sense of how the past connects with the future.-John Peters, New York Public Library

Buzz Aldrin was part of the first Moon landing and the second man to set foot on the Moon His story is one of single-minded achievement from a family that had a history of interest in aviation. His father was a pilot, and he owned signed pictures of the Wright brothers and Amelia Earhart. With the 40th anniversary of the Moon landing mission coming up, Buzz takes readers back into the past, to his own momentous mission, and then speculates on what the future holds. He starts his story with Copernicus and moves quickly through other great scientists like Galileo, Kepler, and Newton. Readers learn about the Wright brothers, Charles Lindberg, and most startling of all, the fact that only sixty-six years elapsed from the Wright brothers first successful flight to the landing on the Moon. Did you know that the astronauts took a piece of fabric from that first plane with them? Other scientists who worked on rocketry also made space flight possible. Sputnik was the gauntlet thrown down by the Soviet Union, and the United States raced to keep up and surpass what the Russians had done. The commitment was extensive and involved hundreds of thousands of people and the dedication of enormous resources as well as the establishment of NASA. Manned flight is traced from the Mercury missions to Gemini and the Apollo program—with the missions laid out on a spread that also includes a picture of the lunar module. Aldrin notes that the current focus is on living in space for longer periods of time, now that the space race has finally come to an end with the agreement to cooperate on building the International Space Station (ISS). The primary objective for the immediate future will be unmanned probeswhich will provide information for the eventual landing on the Moon and the establishing of a base there. Could a trip to Mars be next? Those seeking adventure can dream about being participants in these programs. Along the bottom of each of the pages are quotes from individuals who have had a powerful influence on the space program. Do not miss the Afterword or the timeline that recaps the history of man's interest in space from Copernicus forward. The closing page contains selected resources and a host of websites for curious minds. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
