Outstanding, Primary, space, informational, illustrated, Neil Armstrong, historical
This pocket bio does a brilliant job of summarizing the major events in Neil Armstrong’s life. It talks about how he was a pilot, and due to his amazing skills as a pilot he was chosen to be one of the first astronauts. The space race was mentioned, without any real negative bias, and it talked about the first mission to land on the moon. Eventually he retired to his hometown and bought a dairy farm. It ends with a timeline showing where in his life the different events shown took place, which is a great way to see his life laid out clearly and succinctly.
