Blog Tour Review: To The Moon by Terysa Ridgeway

Hey everyone!
Today is my stop on the blog tour for To The Moon, written by Terysa Ridgeway, and illustrated by Maria Gabriela Gama. I am excited to be sharing not only my review, but also my 5 year old daughter’s thoughts with you all.

A massive thank you to @Lovebookstours for allowing me to be a part of the tour.

Book Blurb:

Eight-year-old problem-solver Terysa is determined to win the school science fair.

There is only one snag: she has so many good ideas, she doesn’t know which one to choose.

Terysa loves astronomy, so she wants her project to be space-related. But what exactly should she present? Luckily, her sister Shana is an astronomy wiz and is on hand to help. Shana inspires Terysa with the tale of mathematician Dorothy Vaughan, NASA’s first Black supervisor and a computer programming pioneer.

Together, the sisters puzzle out the Python code that will get Terysa’s science project moving all on its own, and will soon have a project that is out of this world. But will it be enough to win the top science fair prize?

My Review:

As well as being a fun little read, To The Moon is also full of information on space and code. This is a really great way to get your child excited to learn, and ask questions. It also shows children that it is important to work hard and not give up, and if you need to ask for help, that’s okay. The book is beautifully illustrated too.

Evelyn’s Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this story, and I loved the pictures, especially the page where they are astronauts. I love learning about space, and now I want to learn more about Dorothy Vaughan. I’ve learnt about the lunar module at school, but not the lunar rover, so I would like to learn about that too.
