Let's move bedtime... 
to the moon!
This is an exciting time to be alive. We are in a "new space" era thanks to a growing movement of private and commercial space ventures.
Goodnight Moon is still a profound success in 2020. It is bought on Amazon over 300 times every day! (In June 2020 it is ranked #79 of all books sold on Amazon.)

What if it had a modern update for our new era of space exploration?

Good news: This is going to happen. And I want proceeds from the book to go toward missions for the peaceful and prosperous exploration of space.

Here is the next book that will transport children to the moon, falling asleep there instead:
Humans last walked on the moon before most of us were alive to see it. That is going to change. We will also see people go to space as tourists. 
As business travelers. As entrepreneurs. As artists.

Imagine the benefits to humanity when we can look up to the moon and say, "We are living up there. And we can go farther."

How can we get back to the moon sooner? How can we get back to the moon - to stay?

The answer is not any technology. It is vision. Will power. Determination. This is your first look at an inspirational plan to make our future generations visualize this future in such a compelling way that they will have to make it come true.

My name is Brett Hoffstadt. Chances are you were like me. As a little kid lying in bed at night, I would fall asleep staring out the window at the moon and stars, fantasizing about space exploration. Many of us heard a bedtime book that mentioned the moon. It was this book, first published in 1947:
Saying goodnight on a moon base -- 
To the greenhouse plants that grow lush. To the air locks that go "shush"...  

Filled with vivid hand-made illustrations, children and families will enjoy going to sleep with visions of living on the moon. 
 
Do you have children who love to dream about space exploration? Soon you can fill their minds with visions of living, exploring - and sleeping - on the moon. Bedtime will be something you both look forward to, because what child wouldn't love to be transported to a moon base with all its adventure and appeal?
Plus - readers can donate a portion of book sales to selected organizations that are dedicated to the peaceful expansion of humanity in space. (Organizations like Space Renaissance International and For All Moonkind.)

Take the next step through this doorway:
"It is imperative for humanity to accelerate our growth into a space-fairing species, continuing exploration and kicking-off civilian settlement beyond Earth. Goodnight Moon Base is a heart-warming spark to ignite the imagination of our future innovators who will help us realize this destiny."
Adriano V. Autino, President & co-Founder, 
Space Renaissance International
"It would be easy to say simply that Goodnight Moon Base is a 21st Century spin on a 20th century classic – but it is so much more. It introduces children to their future – one that is not just beyond the window – but beyond our Earth’s orbit. There is no better way to encourage a child to live up to their potential than to remind them of their endless opportunity."
Michelle Hanlon, Co-Founder and President, For All Moonkind
Co-Director of the Center for Air and Space Law at the University of Mississippi School of Law 
To our future on the moon and beyond,

These books have been even more successful. Harnessing the passion and energy of children - while they still have it - and channeling that energy into human space exploration is how we will inspire more of them to dedicate their lives to making this childhood vision a reality. 

Let's have fun starting even younger. Let's use the power of children's imagination to say goodnight on a moon base. With enough children growing up with this vision, they will make it happen for us.
The book has had fair success and impact. 
But it didn’t change the world as much as I had hoped.

I looked for ways to reach people sooner to encourage, educate, and entertain them. 
So I made books like this:
If you want to learn more about me, here is a brief introduction. 

I grew up loving everything that could fly. I channeled this passion and my abilities with math, physics, and building things into aeronautical engineering degrees from Purdue University and Penn State University. Then I was fortunate to work in a diverse and rewarding aerospace engineering career that spanned over 20 years. 

After leaving Boeing in 2014, I wanted to make an even bigger impact to help the profession that I love. I wrote and published my first book: 

How To Be a Rocket Scientist: 
10 Powerful Tips to Enter the Aerospace Field and 
Launch the Career of Your Dreams.
Goodnight Moon Base is a brilliant book! It connects me to my childhood and I'm so excited to read it to Luna, my 5 year old daughter. A well-timed story to spark the imagination of the kids that will end up visiting and living on the moon.  It's a future classic that will lay a foundation of wonder and curiosity for our future space travelers.
