John Glenn is unlike any other public figure before or after him. His story isn't simply a man rising through the ranks to eventually leave the earth behind. It's a love story at its simplest roots. A love for flying. A love for his country. A love for his wife.
This book perfectly captures him from his earliest dreams of flying in his small Ohio town to his extraordinary exploits both in space and in his marriage. Through beautiful pictures and wonderfully crafted words, we learn new things about the man everyone thinks they know. It's a joy that younger readers have such a book to discover him. The book claims to be for ages 4-8, but 4 is on the young end for the length of this book. 6-10 would be more accurate, but the kids who are old enough will love it.

Final Verdict: A book worthy of the man is is written about.
