Sadie is a young girl with a dream…to travel to Mars. She’s done all the research and planning. She’s gathered up her crew and she just needs to build her rocket. After lots of building and measuring, she is ready for lift-off.

Sadie successfully lands on Mars and does all kinds of exploring and sample gathering. When a sand storm comes up, she is worried that they will never make it back to earth.

Sadie is spunky, independent, and is determined to reach her dreams. She is a great character for kids to read about. She works hard to solve problems and encourages her crew along the way as well. Sadie inspires kids to find their passion and follow their dreams.

Fliess uses creative rhyming text and Tempest illustrates with vivid colors, lots of expression, and fun details on the pages including a selfie stick for their first photo on Mars.

The last page of the book includes facts all about Mars and information on women in space including women from the 1700s and 1800s. Who knew women were teaching us about space all those years ago? There is a lot to love about this fictional story that will inspire kids to go after their dreams.
