It is an excellent book for a kid 5-8 to read or have their parents read and show the pictures to them. The false "canals" of Mars are discussed as well as the epic classic sci fi "War of the Wars" by H. G. Wells (one of my favorite books). The Viking mission to Mars and lack of finding conclusive evidence of life is discussed. There are pictures of Mars. The moons Phobos and Deimos are pictured and discussed. There are a few good landscape photos from the small rover Sojourner of the Pathfinder mission. Unfortunately nothing about the rovers Spirit and Opportunity. Missed is discussion on the polar icecaps, volcanoes and huge canyons.

Do buy it as a 5-8 year old kids reading book to increase their reading pleasure. The young kids will learn a little about Mars too. Its a good book for parents to read and show the pictures to the little ones. 5 stars as a kids book.

This product was a fast delivery, well packaged, in good condition, at a fair price and as described. This book is simple for younger minds but well written and a very informative read. Nice photography.

This was a Christmas present for our 5 yr old who has recently discovered the thrill of our solar system. He reads it continually and has many of Seymour Simon's other books about our solar system. He loves them so much and has started sharing them with some of his friends. He constantly relates planetary trivia to me which shows me that he's not just looking at the pictures.

This Mars book is written incredibly well. I'm amazed at how Seymour Simon can speak to a 5 yr old and adults. The artwork and photographs within the book are incredible. I love this and all of Mr. Simon's books we've seen so far. I highly recommend this as a reading tool for any kid that is interested in planets or space in general. If they love the book, they'll keep reading!
