Child Life "Rocket to the Moon" (May 1951)

Child Life was one of the earlier magazines intended just for children that started in 1926 and survived until 2007.

This May 1951 article on a "Rocket to the Moon" is a fun early article for children about space flight. It is illustrated with photographs from the film "Destination Moon" which came out in 1950. A very imaginative way to illustrate this short piece of non-fiction.

This seems from the exhibit at the Hayden Planetarium but the posters don't match (just the travel desk motif)
