Oscar Goes to the Moon is such a cute story based on an Indian folktale! I had never heard of this tale, so it was fun to read. Simple drawings, but effective. A great bedtime story.

Over the moon for Oscar!!

New moms across the world will be asking for this book on their baby registries. I can even see a line of nursery designs and decorations with the Oscar Goes to the Moon theme. Adorable to the max!

A tale of little rabbit living here on earth, that sets a goal to meet a rabbit that lives on the moon. The illustrations are raw and simple, and yet they evoke such love and powerful emotions.


Grateful to have received a digital copy of this book from NetGalley, Ninewise Publishing, Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA).

I read this story to my youngest, 4 year old daughter. This story captivated her attention as we learned about how this little bunny saw a friend in the moon and made a goal to get to the moon. Illustrations are imaginative and sweet

This book is like a hug, warm and fuzzy. The illustrations are beautiful, the words are well chosen. I will definitely buy this book to read it to the kids in my class.

Very cute and charming! The drawings are simple but clean and easy to see. The colors are perfect and the use of beige negative space on some of the pages is lovely. Loved it.

What a sweet little book! Oscar the bunny wants a new friend, so he builds a rocket ship and flies to the moon where he meets a moon bunny and has a tea party with his new friend.

Absolutely adorable, with sweet and whimsical illustrations, this book was quite a bit too young for my 5- and 7-year-olds, but I could definitely see it as a board book on a bookstore shelf next to Good Night Moon.

Very cute book! Would be great for a baby shower. Nice book to read for a nightly bedtime routine. I think it would work well for ages up to five. Will be buying this in paperback version to add to my children’s collection.

Thank you to NetGalley and Ninewise Publishing for the review copy of this book. This was a very sweet story with loveable bunny characters, with a little bit of adventure and space exploration to go along with it! I imagine this story would spark a lot of conversations, both about real world events and even prompting kids to see what faces or figures they see in the moon- and beyond.

This is a sweet book about a bunny named Oscar who feels lonely on Earth and really wants to visit the moon. He tries very hard but walking there and climbing a tree to get there don't seem to work. When he eventually does make his way to the moon he meets a bunny and falls in love. The illustrations are really neat, they almost look like pastel on a textured paper or something like that. I could see using the illustrations as an introduction to an art lesson or for inspiration. I also love that the font is fairly large and easy to read, this is important for young readers. There are also only a few lines per page which will be great for beginning readers to not get too overwhelmed. I would recommend this book to parents and teachers of children in the age 3-8 range. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book!

This was such an adorable picture book! I'm jumping over the moon for Oscar; I want to be Oscar's friend now!
Adorable illustrations. This would be a fantastic book to gift for baby showers and kids' birthday parties. I will definitely be gifting this book to my cousin's baby this Christmas season!

I WANTED TO CRY that was so so cute!!! I didn’t want it to ever end. I’ll even admit I wanted Oscar to live on the Moon forever and maybe visit other planets. I loved this so so much!!

What a sweet story! Oscar never gave up on his dream to fly to the moon to visit the bunny he thinks lives there. As a teacher, I try to teach the importance of never giving up on your dreams. I think this story is a wonderful resource I will use for my toolbox. Cute illustrations are an added bonus. Thank you to NetGalley for the ARC.

Oscar Goes to The moon is a short and sweet book with beautiful illustrations. This is the perfect book for children who are learning to read and need something fun and simple. Thank you for allowing me to read this here on netgalley

Oscar the bunny is longing for an adventure, but can't think of where to go until a full moon fills him with inspiration. As it turns out, getting there proves to be a bit more complicated than he imagined, but he is determined to reach his destination.

This is a sweet, soft, fanciful tale about wanderlust and perseverance. It's a simple story, told in simple language, but it would make a lovely bedtime or quiet time book for preschoolers. The illustrations are absolutely adorable as well! I would use this at home or in a pre-K classroom as a nice wind-down before naptime.

Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review!

Oscar the bunny goes to the moon. Such a sweet picture with vivid illustrations. All to capture the imagination and have fun.

A special thank you to Ninewise Publishing and Negalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.

Adorable and warm illustrations accompany this story of perseverance and exploration. I enjoyed the "play" with print, emphasizing to children that print has meaning.

Oscar the bunny seems to be having trouble finding a friend when he looks up into the sky one night, and sees another bunny on the moon. He can't seem to walk there because as much as he tries, it's just too far. The same goes for floating or even climbing. Finally he comes up with an new idea and even when it takes more work, his reward is an adventure that is out of this world!

I love children's stories about perseverance, and this book teaches that with the help of one of the cutest illustrated bunnies ever. Oscar Goes to the Moon, written and illustrated by Helen Tanner was such a delightful story, and the illustration's texture and style were just magical.

Thank you so much to Netgalley and Ninewise Publishing for the opportunity to read and review this title.
