Reading this book was the perfect follow-up after watching Perseverance land on Mars last month. Ever since, my kids have been fascinated by exploration on Mars, and this book helped answer some of their questions about the history of early exploration on Mars, as well as more recent ventures.

This is a nice, brief history book to whet one’s curiosity about space exploration. I look forward to using this with the latest edition of The Good and the Beautiful Space science unit.

Picture Book for All Ages

For centuries mankind has been fascinated by the bright red spot in the sky that is Mars, one of our nearest spatial neighbors. The red planet was discovered in the night skies more than 4,000 years ago and since then has inspired multiple generations with dreams of space exploration and life on other planets. Discover the ongoing scientific journey to photograph and explore this mysterious planet, and perhaps someday, to land the first human being on its cratered surface.

24 pages, full-color, 11″X8.5″
