Book Review: How to Be on the Moon by Viviane Schwartz


It’s almost impossible to get to the moon. It’s out in space, which is dark and empty, and it’s very far away. If Anna and Crocodile are going to make it to the moon, they’ll need some special skills, like being able to do math and having a lot of patience. They’ll also need to build a rocket. Not to mention the sandwiches for the journey. Luckily, when Anna and Crocodile put their minds together, nothing can stand in their way. 

We met Anna and Crocodile in How to Find Gold, which I believe I called "delightfully silly".  This new adventure starts basically the same way, with Crocodile cautioning that a trip to the moon will be "almost impossible," and the irrepressible Anna responding with, "I like that! Let's go!"

Of course nothing is completely impossible when you have Skills and Patience. Or a super good imagination and a healthy dose of confidence. Anna and Crocodile are quickly becoming one of my favorite picture book duos, and I can't wait to see what they get up to next! You will definitely want both of these for your classroom or library, and should probably check out the rest of Schwartz's work while you are at it.
