Mars: The Red Planet

Mars: The Red Planet

by Lincoln James




The Gareth Steven Leveled Readers in the Series Our Solar System introduce beginning readers to key concepts in the early elementary science curriculum. Our solar system is home to many different worlds. The planet Mercury is hot and rocky. Neptune is cold and stormy. In between are the rest of the planets, including our home planet, Earth. The books in the Our Solar System series take readers on an exciting journey from the sun to dwarf planet Pluto-and beyond! It's time to blast off and explore our solar system.

Many scientists think Mars was once covered with water, just like Earth. Was Mars once home to living creatures as well? Will people one day live on Mars? Scientists are keeping a close eye on Mars in the hope of answering these questions. Open up Mars: The Red Planet to find out more about one of the solar system's most interesting locations.
