The art is lovely, and I like the way encourages us to think beyond birds when we think about nests.

A beautiful story of a young girl's thoughts about the miracle of space travel and the navigation of the spaceship The Eagle.
It was July 20, 1969 and Mae is very much inspired by Neil Armstrong and his first step on the moon. She and neighborhood children pulled together odds and ends and built a make-believe space ship.

This book brought back memories watching this occurrence at the local drug store. The moment was somber. It was quiet as we were fixed to the tv and the miracle of space travel.

President John F. Kennedy vowed to make America the first in making space travel possible. Sadly, he was not alive to see Neil Armstrong place his foot on the surface of the moon. Neither was he alive to hear the voice of Walter Cronkite emotionally stating

"Neil Armstrong, thirty-eight year old American, standing on the surface of the moon, on this July twentieth, nineteen hundred and sixty-nine."

And then, 600 million people were transfixed to the tv, hearing the voice of Neil Armstrong saying:

"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

There would be other journeys into space, one with tragic consequences during the launch, another when men died inside the spaceship during routine testing. The others though, were miraculously launched successfully and American citizens were glued to their TV to watch additional flights of success.

But, none could take the place of Neil Armstrong's voice as his boot made contact with the surface of the moon.
