“Tyler and his family just moved to the moon and he can hardly wait to go play outside on the moon’s surface. His mom is an astronomer and is busy searching the stars. His dad is an engineer working on the big satellite dishes on the surface of the moon. Both are too busy to take Tyler outside to play exactly when he wants to go, and he has been told never to go outside on his own. This is a fantastic book! Ms. Branson gently delivers the message that adults have reasons for telling children ‘No’ and that sometimes children do not understand those reasons until it is too late. We were taken on a delightful tour of the moon while Tyler learned that he is still too little to do some things on his own and that doing them on his own could get him hurt.” ~ reviewed by Keely Skillman for Coffee Time Romance [FIVE STARS]

“My 4-year-old son can easily learn the value of listening to his parents by reading about Tyler not listening to his mom and dad and, as a result, falling in the moon crater.” ~ reviewed by Shanna Bartlett Groves [FIVE STARS]

“A delightful life lesson for all youngsters — not just future astronauts.” ~ reviewed by R. Slaughter for Chaos Arts Reviews [FIVE STARS]
