When Neil Armstrong Built a Wind Tunnel

by Mark Weakland
Illustrated by Luciano Lozano

Astronaut Neil Armstrong couldn't be held down by Earth's gravity. As the first person to step foot on the moon, Neil took the US space program to new heights. But before he did that, he had humble boyhood jobs-cutting lawns, cleaning ovens, washing airplanes-and plenty of adventures, including building a wind tunnel in his parents' basement! This playful story shows young readers that not even the sky is the limit for their own dreams.
