Ms Rusch puts science back in the fun corner giving the reader an adventure to root for the little guys! Both rovers opportunity and spirit take us on a tour of the planet Mars way beyond their three-month life expectancy and more.
As the little rovers chug along completing mission after mission Ms Rusch’s descriptive words puts the reader in the driver’s seat. Add both the beautiful images and diagrams and she makes it easy to visualize the Martian landscape.
Nearing the end of the book I can’t help but be reminded of Pixar’s Wall-e and at the same time wish I was seven again competing in my school science fair!
