DESCRIPTION:

Join Carole P. Roman when she blasts off to colonize the planet Mars, in the newest book of her informative series. Learn about how life would be living on the Red Planet. Travel to Olympus Mons, the largest volcano in the solar system. Look into the sky and watch Phobos and Deimos, Mars' two moons. Discover what you would wear, and how the seasons change. See Mars through the eyes of an adventurous youngster like you and understand what life is like in a trip of a lifetime. Don't forget to look at the other books in the series so that you can be an armchair traveler.

MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Roman's stories.  This one is no different, except its in space.

I love all the fun facts in the book.  They are great for young readers who are interested in other cultures and like to explore.

Although, after reading this one life on Mars sounds like it could be very interesting place to live.  It would take lots of preparation and you have to plan on being there a long time, but if it was really a thing we could do I think I would want to try it.  This one is super fun to read.

Source:  I was given this book by the author in return for an honest review.  I was not compensated in any way for this review.  These are my own PERSONAL thoughts on the book.
