“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. TYLER ON THE MOON 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. My son summed it up best when he said: ‘Tyler could have been hurt really badly and no one would have known where he was,’ and then, with tears in his eyes, he apologized for going outside to play anyway when I told him he had to wait for me to go with him. When a book makes a four-year-old understand why Mommy makes rules he does not like, it is worth reading every night. Congratulations to Ms. Branson and a big ‘thank you’ for helping me finally get the message across to my son!” ~ 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.” ~ Shanna Bartlett Groves
“A delightful life lesson for all youngsters–not just future astronauts.” ~ Chaos Arts Reviews [FIVE STARS]
