This book is about the possibility of the impossible and just opens up the door to “you can do anything you put your mind to. Be informed, be prepared and take a risk!” I love how it stresses the importance of math, being patient, being prepared and using tons of imagination to make your dreams come true. It is a wonderful, creative STEAM book to just open a young child's mind to possibility. Everyone's a winner in this book-which is great, as attaining your dreams are not a competition but a jo ...more
It was still there, white against a blue sky, early on Sunday morning. It didn't reappear again until seconds after midnight today. It's received more attention than usual as people everywhere are commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 first moon landing on July 20, 1969.

Wherever you are on Earth, looking at the moon fifty years later, it's still hard to comprehend traveling 238,900 miles through space to complete the journey there and repeat that distance to return home. If you hap
This Saturday is the day! It's the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. There have been many books published recently about the events before and surrounding this journey. This is a fun book that talks about a moon visit in more imaginative ways. Anna, a little girl, with great enthusiasm, and her crocodile friend, with helpful and supportive ideas, are ready for their day. The girl says "Let's go to the moon!" and the crocodile responds "It will be almost impossible" while giving the re ...more

How To Be On The Moon is an amusing, quirky tale about one adventurous little girl, her crocodile pal, and their unforgettable journey to the moon. Sweetly silly text and pops of texture and color collide together in one exciting tale.

A fun make-believe trip to the moon with Anna and her best friend Crocodile.
Just a fun little fantasy story of a girl and her talking crocodile going to the moon.

There is an absurdity and wit to this that reminds a parent/orator of Winnie-the-Pooh or of Lemony Snicket. I enjoyed it very much.

Beautiful illustrations and a cute story about having a good imagination...and sandwiches. Don't forget the sandwiches.

A nice follow up to How to Find Gold. The two friends go off on another one of their imaginative adventures- this time to the moon with plenty of sandwiches.

I loved this dialogue-heavy story of a little girl and her crocodile imagining their way to the moon and back. It made a great story time read-aloud and my 3-year-old and 5-year-old daughters frequently choose to look at it independently as well.

This warm, clever and creative picture book is filled with adventure and excitement. Anna is vivacious and confident. While Crocodile tries be be the voice of reason, explaining why things aren't as easy as she would think, he's soon swept away with enthusiasm and delight. Accenting the bonds of friendship and cooperation, the two make an unstoppable team. The story is simply wonderful, filled with witty dialogue and encouraging the use of imaginative play and embracing a sense of freedom and jo ...more
