Tyler and his family just moved to the moon and he can hardly wait to go play outside on
the moons 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.  

My son summed it up best when he said, “Tyler could have been hurt really badly and no
one would have know where he was,” and then, with tears in his eyes, he apologized for
going outside to play any way 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!
