Is this book about a real woman in STEAM?

Mars is a cold, forbidding planet, but humans still want to travel there.

How will we prepare for humans to survive on Mars, much less build a colony there? Discover the possibilities with this engaging picture book!

The Rocket that Flew to Mars is a space-age version of The House that Jack Built.

In this entertaining story, young readers will see how a rocket could carry a 3D printer that can build a biodome that is pressurized by an air system powered by a solar array that is maintained by a robot. But when the robot accidentally tracks a bit of dirt inside, something surprising happens!

Learn how life on Mars might, possibly, come to be--when The Rocket Flew to Mars!

This is a fun, educational book for preschoolers, kindergarten and elementary students, and anyone who loves to read about space exploration. Teachers will love adding this picture book to their STEM/science units!

Ideal for children ages 4-8.

Additional Reader & Professional Reviews:

"The story is simple and the author's fluidity in expression gives it a good pace and movement. Learning about space and science has been made interesting through this storybook."
-- Readers' Favorite, five star review

"This first book about space for kids is one that builds on itself to explain concepts and what happens first and then what can come next. It is a great way for kids to learn about how things happen. Kids will like to follow the robot in this story or discover what a 3-D printer possibly can do on Mars. So as a grandmother this is a book I will share with my grandchildren. This is a clever story with explanations along the way that keep curious children engaged, wanting to know more!"
-- Kathryn P., grandparent.
