CURIOSITY'S DISCOVERY is a rhyming picture book for children 4-8 years old and should appeal to children who love robots, science, and space exploration.

Curiosity, the robot rover, has searched Mars for signs of life for years. When she hears unusual sounds, she zooms off to discover the source. She must figure out the strange code and find the sender before the transmission disappears forever.

With fun rhyme and colorful illustrations, CURIOSITY'S DISCOVERY takes the reader on a mystery adventure on Mars as the trusty rover hears an unknown radio signal. She discovered an older rover, Spirit, just as his batteries crash and his transmission ends. Now, she must revive him if she has any chance of having a friend.

The story explores the themes of perseverance, resourcefulness, and friendship. At the back of the book are fun facts about the planet, Mars, the NASA Mars rover program, and Morse code. It includes links to additional resources for curious kids, educators, and caregivers.

"I absolutely love the book. The pictures are great. I love the rhyming (kids love that too). I think she (the author) took a difficult topic for kids to grasp and put it in a way that they will understand and love! I will wait anxiously to see it on our library shelves so I can check it out and read it to my kiddos!" Kellie Bilbrey, 2nd Grade Teacher, Dora Schools, Dora, New Mexico
