Earth and Mars are presented in a way that highlights how different they are without presenting either planet in a negative manner. The vocabulary and sentence structure were designed to enhance reading confidence while still making the story fun to read. Resources in the back of the book help teachers and parents find more factual information about Mars for young readers who show an interest in learning more.
