My son (4) is obsessed with space. This book so captured his imagination (and love of counting), the we ended up buying our own copy.

When a messy-haired kid with a gap-toothed grin decides that the moon looks sad, he devises an ingenious 24-step plan to bicycle to the moon and perk it up with some sunflowers. Though it's based on a handful of real scientific facts, most of the boy's plan is laughably implausible, yet readers won't be able to resist his unshakable optimism. Loaded with the kind of wacky ideas that kids love - what's not awesome about a giant slingshot to the moon? - and illustrated with delightfully detailed cartoons, this quirky how-to guide (from Caldecott Medalist Mordicai Gerstein) is a great pick for older kids and aspiring engineers.
