Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Whee to the Moon by Arron Charman

Title: Whee To The Moon

Author: Arron Charman

Illustrator: Martin Scott

Release Date: 24th September 2019

Genre: Picture Book

Page Count: 34

Publisher: Clink Street Publishing

Summary:

Neil is a young boy who likes to scream “whee!” with excitement when he’s at the playground. Neil develops a love of flying. As he gets older, he learns how to fly aircraft that will take him on many different adventures. Even though he is now a grown up, Neil still excitedly screams “whee!” as he gets to fly all the way to the Moon!

 

My Review:

What a great way to share the biography of Neil Armstrong and show children how he set off enjoying on the playground, just like so many of them, but went on to learn to fly and became the first man on the moon. The pictures are child friendly and the text is in an easy to read font.

As a teacher, I could certainly use this book to help introduce work on biographies or space travel. Some of the vocabulary used will be difficult for some children to read independently but it is still a lovely book that children will enjoy and could even inspire them to develop their own interest in space and space travel. Who knows, it could inspire budding astronauts to follow their dreams, too.

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion after choosing tor read it.
