My Aspiring Astronaut Loves This Book

May 22, 2024

My son wants to be an astronaut and loves everything to do with space. This series was eye-opening for him! We love that the main character has a strong, supportive family that has fun adventures together. My son loves the first book in the series and is so excited to read the second one!


Such a fun book!

Mars is pretty exciting!

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.
