Curiosity: The Story of a Mars Rover by Markus Motum -ESSENTIAL

Motum, Markus Curiosity: The Story of a Mars Rover  NON-FICTION/PICTUREBOOK. Candlewick , 2018. $23.
This lovely first person view of the mars rover Curiosity features a bit of the history of the space program, why mars became so interesting, how Curiosity was designed and built, its travel to Mars, and its adventures since.  Extra large pages features huge images easy to share with a group.
This is a fantastic book that will pull younger readers in as they learn the story of Curiosity from Curiosity himself/herself! It is a perfect accompaniment to a lesson about Mars and 
a teacher could go online and show actual photographs that Curiosity has taken. The artwork is darling and appealing and readers will be fascinated. Just enough information without being overwhelming –great for K-2
