Nonfiction Monday



Nonfiction Monday is hosted today by Sally'sBookshelf.

For Nonfiction Monday --  "Cars on Mars: roving the red planet" by Alexandra Siy.
 

"Go 303,000,000 miles, then stop at the fourth rock from the sun".  

 
So begins the journey of Spirit and Opportunity as Siy leads her audience through the exploration of our neighboring planet, Mars.  Informative, with clear language and illustrated with stunning photographs, this book enables readers to understand the purpose and work of these two historic Mars rovers.

 
Additional reading is provided with a section about resources titled "Much more about Mars and the rovers," a glossary for the many unfamiliar scientific terms, and  bibliography round out the book.
