The Rocket that Flew to Mars by Audrey Sauble is all about the rocket that flew to Mars. The book speaks about the capsule propelled by the engines that launched the rocket that flew to Mars. It travels for many, many days before landing on Mars. The air on Mars is thin and the air system inside the capsule is required to enable people to survive on Mars. The solar panels make electricity to run the air system and many other machines in the biodome. Mars is a dusty place to live and the robot cleans the solar panels. A seed falls while cleaning the solar panels and it grows with the help of water dripping from one of the leaked pipes.
The book is about space travel and is informative and educational to both young and old alike. The pictures are very interesting and help readers understand the concept clearly.
