Lightship and Moonshot BSW1200

US$28.95

Lightship:
You may never have heard of a lightship. Once, lightships anchored on waters across America, on the oceans and in the Great Lakes, floating where lighthouses could not be built. Smaller than most ships, but more steadfast, too, they held their spots, through calm and storm, to guide sailors toward safe waters. In these pages one lightship and her crew (and cat) again hold their place. The crew goes again from bow to stern, from keel to mast, to run their engines, shine their lights, and sound their horns. They run the small ship that guides the large ships. They are the crew (and cat) that work to make the ocean safe, that hold their place, so other ships can sail. 
 

Moonshot:
Simply told, grandly shown, here is the flight of Apollo 11. Here for a new generation of readers and explorers are the steady astronauts, clicking themselves into gloves and helmets, strapping themselves into sideways seats. Here are their great machines in all their detail and monumentality, the ROAR of rockets, and the silence of the Moon. Here is a story of adventure and discovery—a story of leaving and returning during the summer of 1969, and a story of home, seen whole, from far away.

《灯船》本书要讲述的是一艘灯船和它的船员,还有一只可爱的小猫……当灯船进入孩子们的视野,他们可能会思考:什么是使命?什么是坚守?什么是平凡?什么是伟大?是什么更迭不止?是什么永驻心田?
《登月》本书再现了阿波罗11号从佛罗里达到月球的非凡旅程,这是一段关乎探索与发现、出发与归来的激动人心的历史。叙事节奏有张有弛:开篇介绍宇航员入舱前有条不紊的准备工作;接着进入紧张的发射阶段;在到达广袤太空后,宇航员经历着看似神奇实则艰难的失重反应;燃料即将耗尽却必须重新寻找着陆点;人类最终踏上黑暗又孤寂的月球并安全返回地球。世界上6亿人见证了这样激动人心的时刻。这是个人的一小步,却是人类的一大步!
