THE SPACESUIT How a Seamstress Helped Put Man on the Moon

by | Read by Allyson Ryan, Chris Lutkin

Children Ages 4-6 • 11 mins. • Unabridged • © 2020

In a short audio biography, young listeners learn about the seamstress who helped engineer and sew the spacesuit for the astronauts of Apollo 11. Narrators Allyson Ryan and Chris Lutkin divide the text about Ellie Foraker, who led a team of garment makers at the underwear manufacturer that won a NASA competition to create the spacesuits that took the Apollo crew to the moon. Ryan narrates the main story in a calm voice and even cadence. Lutkin interjects "facts" about the creation and engineering of the suits and the Apollo mission. His contrasting serious tone interrupts the flow of the narrative--something that would probably go unnoticed in the picture book format. Nevertheless, this intriguing aspect of the Apollo mission makes an informative audiobook program. R.F.W. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2020]
