In July 1969, the world witnessed an awe-inspiring historical achievement when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on the moon. For the young protagonist of this lyrical and hopeful picture book, that landing is something that inspires her to make one giant step toward all of the possibilities that life has to offer.

Caldecott Honor–winning painter Jerry Pinkney and the poetic Dianna Hutts Aston create a moving tribute to the historic Apollo 11 Mission, just in time to commemorate its upcoming fortieth anniversary.

Dianna Hutts Aston is the author of Mama's Wild Child / Papa's Wild Child, When You Were Born (Candlewick), and An Egg is Quiet (Chronicle). She lives in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
