Curiosity--The Story of Mars Rover

Curiosity--The Story of Mars Rover by Markus Motum is the story of the robot developed and sent to Mars to explore the red planet. Mars is 350,000,000 miles away, too far for a human to travel. The rover had to be able to collect reams of data after a successful launch and landing, which were not a given. The book captures the tension and excitement in the preparation for a major mission. Narrated by Curiosity, the content is very informative and personalized. The need to ask questions and to wonder is laid out perfectly in this picture book.
