Mia and Peter find a red rock at the playground. Could it be from the planet Mars? Intrigued by this question, they embark on a journey to find some answers. Equipped with a notebook, curiosity, and a lot of imagination, the two hunt down the very latest in Martian research. They read books, peer through a telescope, and even make a model of Mars out of paper. In the process, the source material they study begins to merge with their own imaginings of a distant world.
Mia, Peter, and Mars is a book that not only tells a story about interplanetary exploration. When Mia and Peter gather information in their notebook, they take a big step towards media literacy.
