Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11 by Brian Floca tells the amazing true story of the first humans to land on the moon. This book is packed full of kid-friendly information and great illustrations.
Balloons Over Broadway: The True Story of the Puppeteer of Macy's Parade by Melissa Sweet tells the story of how the Macy's Day Parade transformed from a parade of live animals in cages to what it is today. If you love watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade every year (like me) you will surely enjoy reading about the puppeteer whose ideas and creativity are responsible for the amazing balloons that parade through the streets of New York every year.
Manfish: A Story of Jacques Cousteau by Jennifer Berne tells kids about the amazing underwater world Jacques Cousteau loved so much. Told through vivid watercolor illustrations and kid-friendly text...this is definitely one of my favorites.
