Someday people from Earth may live on Mars. In this century, we will go to the planet to learn more about it. It will become our outpost in space—our space colony. This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 5 to 7. It’s a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.
The author-illustrator pair who brought us THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION, FLOATING IN SPACE, and WHAT THE MOON IS LIKE tackle the new hot topic in space—a mission to the red planet.
This is a Level 2 Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science title, which means the book explores more challenging concepts for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards. Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.
