  1. I already love Mailbox TO THE MOON AND BACK … prize packet #2 would be an awesome resource to have on hand as I move from 2nd grade to kindergarten. (:

  2. Race You to the Moon Prize Pack #2 would be a great addition to my classroom! My kiddos love learning about space!

  3. I love books about the moon and space missions. I was in high school when Apollo 11 landed on the moon. I have been fascinated since!

  4. My students’ dreams for visiting space would be ignited by reading a selection from either of these stellar sets of books. They would race to pick up a book from the Race-You-to-the-Moon Prize Pack #2!

  5. I am actually old enough to remember the moon landing and first steps! Prize Pack #2 would help getting first graders as excited as I was when I watched Neil Armstrong.

  6. I teach fourth grade I think prize pack #1 would be the
    Most appropriate. I teach Florida history and live within 2 hours of Cape Kennedy.
    These books would add to my curriculum.
    Thank you.
