Eight Days Gone by Linda McReynolds

Ready for another awesome picture book? This one blew my mind- pun intended :) It is Eight Days Gone by Linda McReynolds, illustrated by Ryan O'Rourke.

The story relates the tale of the 1969 Apollo 11 space launch and the first lunar landing. And the coolest thing to me was how complete the story was, even though the author uses short two or three word sentences. Kids will love this book and learn a little history too. At the very end of the book is a page of true facts and a picture of the real lunar module back dropped against the moon.
