J: gave it 5 stars. I think it would be not fun to live on Mars because of the sand storms and rocks hitting the planet. But it is fun learning about Mars.

C: gave it 4 stars. Thought a weeks-long sandstorm sounded crazy.

A: gave it 4 stars. She didn’t like the dust storm and the rocks hitting Mars. She felt like things were too intense for Mark!

My son fights me on reading most days, he would just rather be moving than sitting still, but this book had him hooked. He loved it as did I. It was a lovely book and each chapter had some excitement to it.

This book ignited a fascination with Mars and space exploration in the mind of my oldest son. It was his absolute favorite book. Two years later, he now owns multiple books on mars and space.

I picked this one up after hearing it was the favorite book of a friend’s daughter, who is also 5. This did not disappoint! The full color pages and imaginative representation of a colony on Mars is incredible. It was very fitting when we reached the part about sharing books with friends. My kids read this one over and over.
