Reviews

Praise for Go for the Moon: A Rocket, A Boy, and the First Moon Landing
Gall uses approachable analogies to illuminate STEAM concepts, and an author's note recalls Gall's experience watching the moon landing as a child, further personalizing this edifying and heartfelt story. - Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

Gall balances densely explanatory pages with wide-angle scenes filled with tension and drama. - The New York Times

The final double-page spread is a stunning, vertiginous view of the boy's next generation of homemade rockets lifting off. A solid addition to the growing collection of fine volumes about Apollo 11. - Kirkus

[Gall's] enthusiasm for rocketry shines brightly in loving attention to hardware detail in the art, with human participants rendered as merely necessary adjuncts. - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Recommended for science classes and school and public library collections. - School Library Journal

The large trim size places the focus on the richly colored illustrations, which chart and diagram each phase of the journey and return. - Booklist
