Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Buzz Aldrin

Children Ages 6+ • 30 min. • Unabridged • © 2005

Who would guess that the 2-year-old who rode in his father’s airplane painted like an eagle would some day be on board the moon lander Eagle? Or that the boy who delighted in his rock collection would one day collect rock samples from the moon’s surface? Coincidences are poignant as Buzz Aldrin shares his autobiography with young listeners. His resiliency and determination as a childhood adventurer and athlete carry on to his later years as a young cadet at West Point and then an aspiring astronaut. Aldrin’s narration is firm, yet modest. His pacing leaves time to appreciate accomplishments and to savor Wendell Minor’s majestic paintings. The musical score complements and completes this recording. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
