Science lesson for the author:
a) There is gravity on the moon. The escape velocity of the moon is 2.38 km per second. So the tomato slices need to go that fast or they will come back down.
b) The moon has no atmosphere.
I despise children's books that quietly teach misinformation. Imagination is great, misinformation is bad.
That said, it is a gentle, soothing bedtime book for space-loving preschoolers. Almost too much so - my son got a little restless with the descriptions of camping on the moon and asked me to put the book away and get another one at one point, so we skipped the rest of that page and moved on. Harold's Trip to the Moon is still our first choice for a bedtime space book, but I'm sure this title will get some play too, with a little judicious editing on mom's part.
