LET’S GO TO THE MOON!
.
.

It’s time to pack your bags! You’re going on a trip to the moon!
.
.
The temperature on the moon is negative seventy degrees. So make sure to pack warm socks, and a peanut butter sandwich.

.

.

It takes many light years to reach the moon, so get comfortable! It’s a good thing you’re in a turbo-charged spaceship. If you were traveling to the moon by car, going eighty miles an hour, it would take a lot longer. If a baby were born the day you left, its great-great grandchildren would be dead before you got there. Bring some music to play during your trip.

.

.

There is no food on the moon. There is no ice cream either. The longest a person can go without food is ten days. If they have water to drink, they can last for twenty days.

.

.

There is no water on the moon, either.

.

.

When you are in outer space, there is no gravity. You can float through the air. The food and liquid you brought aboard your spaceship can float as well!
.

.

Be careful, and don’t bump your head on any sharp corners in your space cabin. If you bleed, your blood will float through the air in tiny red droplets. That might make you go crazy.

.

.

In space, there is no one for millions of miles in any direction. Good thing you brought your Teddy Bear. I hope he likes you.

.

.

You have landed on the moon! Be sure to take a picture out the window of your spaceship.

.

.

Now that you are here, don’t go outside unless you are wearing a special Moonsuit. There is no oxygen in the moon’s atmosphere. If you leave your spaceship without a special Moonsuit, the atmospheric pressure will shrivel you until you look like a dried-up matchstick.

.

.

So zip up your moonsuit, and put your helmet on tight!

.

.

Step down from your ship. You are on the surface of the moon! Have a good look around. The night sky is beautiful.

.

.

You can see planet Earth, a billion miles away. Did you tell your Mommy where you were going? Maybe it’s time to head back. She’s probably very worried.

.

.

On the long ride home, think about all the fun you had on your trip to the moon! Remember how small your home planet looked from such a distance? Nothing really matters anymore, now that you have been so far from home.

.

.

Nobody on Earth will really understand what you mean by that. It will make you feel like you are all alone in space again.

.

.

You think you have left the moon, but you can never really leave it. It will always be with you.

 

THE END.
