My son and I enjoyed another “Who Was?” biography about the first person to set foot on the moon. Armstrong was always a private person so he was harder to feel like you knew anything about him compared with Buzz Aldrin and other more outgoing astronauts. This book fills in the details such as his early love for flying and becoming a pilot at a young age. There’s also the sad story of his daughter dying at the age of two, something that Armstrong never spoke about. This is a good bio for children (and their parents) wanting to learn about the man who took “one small step” and changed the world.
