    1. This is one of those wacky outside the box picture books, but I kind of like it I love that it takes kids imaginations seriously and envisions an entirely implausible, but completely well thought out plan for planting sunflowers on the moon Kids who are fond of books in graphic format will enjoy reading the speech bubbles and panels It might also inspire kids to come up with their own Rube Goldberg type plans for accomplishing a simple task.

    2. The cover says, It s easy and fun Ha Kindergarten to 2nd graders will have a good time with this earnestly absurd story It s really of an instruction book, so it could probably use a disclaimer, but I m glad there s not one If a kids asks to borrow your old garden hose, you ll know what they re up to

    5. Summary How to Bicycle to the Moon to Plant Sunflowers is a delightful picture book, written in the style of a graphic novel, which follows the 24 step by step instructions a boy has created for getting to the moon in order to plant flowers to help the moon cheer up The plan is farfetched but entertaining, involving the creation of a giant slingshot using car tires and shooting a grappling hook made from an anchor The book describes various details of the trip, such as working in zero gravity, e [...]

    6. Mordicai Gerstein is a master at illustrating larger than life events, fictional or otherwise He was awarded the Caldecott Medal and others in 2004 for his non fiction title, The Man Who Walked Between the Towers I can t help but wonder if that and his own passion for bicycling combined to inspire this remarkably credible how to book in the voice of a very determined, clever, and ambitious young boy it offers plenty of value in and of itself, but has other lives in it, as mentor text for how to [...]

    9. I like the description and imagination and the books are okay it is a little long winded, probably best for a Late Elementary school person or early Middle school grades It makes you wonder if you really can go to the moon on a bikee idea though not plausible is well thought out You gotta give it that read May 22, 2013 with 3 starsRead again on April 4, 2015 and I think I am changing my vote to4 starsYep after reading this again with some literature experience and almost 2 years later I totally [...]

    10. A humorous how to manual to do just what the title says I can see this being a fun read aloud that then sparks kids creativity when you ask them to come up with their own 24 easy steps plan I think I am rating it unfairly low because I am so dismayed at the lack of science in schools My kids had science fair projects that weren t far off this let s not worry about what actually is possible, let s just make up a cool plan devoid of history or reality, and so it s like nails on a chalkboard for me [...]

    11. This is one of the most fun books I ve read in a while The book s layout is reminiscent of a comic book in layout and artistic style Although many of the steps within the book are not soundly based on any practicality, it is a fun book that encourages reading and inspires action based on hypothetical reasoning The illustrations in some ways reminded me of old comic strips that one would find in a newspaper Gerstein does a great job to attract young readers, as this was a very popular book in my [...]

    13. The art style doesn t thrill me, but the story and the humor are so enjoyable that I have to recommend this Obviously we ve all stayed awake at night wondering how to get sunflowers on the moon, right The level of detail in the 24 step plan is impressive, and I cannot imagine how much time Gerstein spent putting this together I read it aloud to my son, and had to stop a couple of times because he and his dad were laughing so much Inventors, tinkerers, builders, engineers, and scientists will esp [...]

    14. This is a delightful step by step account of a little boy s plan for bicycling to the moon Even though the plan is outrageous many scientific facts are included, 238,900 miles to the moon, ability to float in outer space, and the clearly explained concept of how to catapult the anchor to the moon, etc Reading How to Bicycle to the Moon will lead young readers right to the space section of the library The colorful cartoon illustrations are very fun as well.

    15. Mordicai Gerstein s imaginative picture book tells how to plant sunflowers on the moon via a long trip using a bike, a hose and a very ambitious plan It s a fun story that could be an accompaniment to a unit on the moon, space travel or inventions Kids could discuss which of his brilliant ideas would work would sunflowers grow on the moon s surface and they could come up with some of their own crazy solutions to a problem.

    16. This was not my favorite book, it was a little out there I am a fan of weird funny books, but I just was not a fan of this one It was a guide book to ride your bicycle to the moon and plant sunflowers The illustrations were not very well done and just all in all a pretty strange book Nothing I would like to have in my classroom or use for a read aloud

    17. A how to guide for a plan to plant subflowers on the surface of the moon so as to cheer it up Funny and detailed in execution this picture book reminded me of a comic book and the artwork made me think of Steven Kellogg s work.I love kids books that encourage creativity, especially when it s zany PreK 2.

    18. I wanted to like this, but somehow I didn t the art was okay, but the story bugged me It was, of course, not realistic, but it wasn t absurd enough to entertain me I m reading space books to include in my summer reading program at the library, so maybe I ll see if the kids like it, depending on what other titles I can find.

    19. I have very mixed opinions on this book As a humor book it was a bit flat, but the concept was great fun I enjoyed the following this boy s plan, seeing each step in the process and ultimately seeing the outcome For STEM STEAM programs this is a book that will keep children s interest and also teach the process of making a plan and seeing it through step by step.

    20. Great book to introduce measurement and space travel to students Younger students will enjoy the pictures and antics Older students can calculate how many water 100 ft water hoses it would take to stretch to the moon Works as a whole group read aloud or small group investigation and instruction.

    21. I read about this in a School Library Journal a few months ago when putting together an order list, and marked it as DEFINITELY However, the order never really happened, and I forgot about the book until I saw it this morning on the new picture books display and snatched it up to read Definitely thinking of Dr Collins for this book

    22. A funny, entertaining trip to the moon, following the steps written out by a boy who had this great idea but is too busy to execute his plan This would be a great book to pair with non fiction texts about space or the moon as well as a great text to use for instructional writing.
