The Girl Who Walked to the Moon

Little Tessa dreams of being the first woman to land on the moon.

 

After her rocket made from boxes gets her off to a slow start, Tessa sets off on an epic adventure around the world to find out how to make her moon dream come true. Ancient moon rituals from three different cultures grant her the wisdom she was missing, but will she be able to put it into practice?

It's a spiritual tale for practical people, showing us that success involves stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.

The book did fantastically on Kickstarter and there's a great story behind the story. Read all about it here.

I love how the book is so encouraging despite all the challenges that Little Tessa faces along the way to become an Astronaut!

We learn the word "Perseverance" here in this book !

 

No matter how hard it is, as Long as you work toward it you’ll achieve it one day !

There’s a lot to it with the different cultures and Tessa’s journey.

 

I’d love to learn more about those cultures. I have a Shipibo boy doll and I’ve not really researched him much before and now feel inspired to.

 

I’m sure the book will be a great springboard for discussions about different cultures, ceremonies and values.

She travels through snow and ice, deserts and mountains and each place gives her hope, happiness and a solid dose of self-love. 

 

Though while she has been following her dream, her life has changed in both positive and heart-breaking ways. It is learning to understand and cope that give us strength to continue on the path to our dreams. 

With subtle themes of bereavement, doubt and perseverance this will be perfect for all readers with a dream in their hearts! 

The smile on Tessa's face as she says "I will only succeed; I won't settle for less" is wonderful and reads like a mantra for us all!
