Although it would be pretty cool to travel to other planets, we're not quite there yet. However, scientists at NASA have created AMAZING robots that are able to explore for us. Curiosity: The Story of a Mars Rover by Markus Motum is about one such robot. Markus Motum's illustrations are beautiful, expressive, and educational. Did you know that Curiosity was named by a sixth-grader from Kansas? I didn't! You'll learn that and much more by picking up this book!
