"If you decide to go to the moon," writes Faith McNulty, "read this book first. It will tell you how to get there and what to do after you land. The most important part tells you how to get home." Written in the second person, the text allows the reader to participate in every aspect of the journey, from packing ("don't forget your diary and plenty of food") to liftoff (at first you'll feel heavy; don't worry") to traveling through space (where "the moon glows like a pearl in the black, black sky"). The reader lands at the Sea of Tranquility, the site of the first lunar landing.

If you Decide to go to the Moon is a fantastically illustrated book that makes space exploration understandable to younger readers. It could really aid a unit on outer space and the planets by giving the concepts a sense of adventure and human element which makes the topic more relatable for students.
