You Are the First Kids on Mars
by Patrick O'Brien
A entertaining step-by-step itinerary of a four month trip to Mars. Some of the technology hasn't been created yet, but is based on speculative plans. The reader is included from the beginning... in fact, they are scheduled for this mission. :)
In their positive review of this book, Booklist reckons that students will be so involved in the details and photo-realistic illustrations they "won't even realize they're learning all sorts of wonderful things about gravity, distance, geology..."
Interest Level: Kindergarten - Grade 3
