Book Review: Life On Mars by Jon Agee & Giveaway

 I have a delightful picture book to share with you today. Life on Mars by Jon Agee follows a young astronaut on a mission to find life on the planet mars. He is all alone and starts doubting his convictions - that there is in fact life there- until the end of the book. The muted colors of the pages and the sweet alien that follows him make this a special treat. We really enjoyed this book during our read aloud time.


A young astronaut is absolutely sure there is life to be found on Mars. He sets off on a solitary mission, determined to prove the naysayers wrong. But when he arrives, equipped with a package of cupcakes as a gift, he sees nothing but a nearly barren planet. Finally, he spies a single flower and packs it away to take back to Earth as proof that there is indeed life on Mars. But as he settles in for the journey home, he cracks open his cupcakes—only to discover that someone has eaten them all!

One lucky reader will win a copy of Life On Mars!
