Mission to Mars

"Mission to Mars" by Franklyn M. Branley is a Let's Read-and-Find-Out Science Stage 2 picture book.

This book starts out by suggesting that the reader could actually be the first person to walk on Mars. It reviews the Mars Habitat Lander and all of its parts.

It reviews how Mars got it's name. It was named after the God of War because the planet was red in color. Red reminded people of the blood shed in war.

It also reviews how Mars once had water but is dry and dusty now. It never rains on Mars.There are many old volcanoes too.
