    PreS-Gr 3—This picture book is a stunning tribute to members of the author's own family who worked in a textile mill that produced fabric for the Apollo 11 space suits. Told from the perspective of Marthanne, the daughter of a textile worker, this story seamlessly weaves together the excitement of the moon landing with the tale of the people who contributed to the historical event. In contrast to Marthanne's elevated sense of pride, her father's humility about his important role in the launch reflects the American spirit of the time period. With its detailed and bold illustrations, this book is sure to appeal to a wide audience, adults included. VERDICT A highly recommended purchase for any library, this book has a unique perspective on how every little piece works together to accomplish something great.—Jasmine L. Precopio, Fox Chapel Area School District, Pittsburgh
