Man On Mars by Joey M. Sifen and Goldylox is the story of a man who lived on Mars. He could see much farther than any of us. People on Mars can always see what is true, and it will be exciting to ride for a while in his space ship across the sky where dippers dip, and see life from his point of view. It will be interesting to watch the earth from his telescope and see the ground like puzzle pieces where everyone is mixed around. It is very clear to see where each piece goes, what it can be when you think you are going wrong, and if you are singing a different song. The best thing would be to ask the Man on Mars if you do not know what is true.

This book takes young readers, along with two boys and their dog, to Mars and gives them a peek at life there, how the people of Mars look at the earth, and what they can see from there. The illustrations by Goldylox are captivating and they bring the story alive by giving it a good pace and movement. Reading this book at home and in classrooms is a good way to introduce children to the planet Mars and the life that may exist there. It is a fun way to learn about the planets and makes knowing more about the planets and space interesting and interactive. Reading this book will also encourage children to gaze at the starry skies, using a telescope to have a look at the planets and wonder about possible life there.
