    Good illustrations and a tale that has rhymes. The book is about a happy young girl Sadie who decides to fly to Mars. A good way of encouraging little ones to enter the field of STEM, the end of the book includes extra facts about Mars and women in space/science. Amazon prime first reads.

    Obviously a very quick read but so worth it! Such a cute book and the illustrations are amazing! I'm a big fan of the stars and planets (not that I know a lot about them, but I love to look at them). I got this book from Amazon's First reads "program". The extra information at the end was a nice touch as well. Very informative. Rating: G -very kid friendly Language: clean Recommend: Yes Obviously a very quick read but so worth it!

    THIS IS SO CUTE. A little girl builds a ship to Mars, aiming to be the first one there. It's told in rhymes and it reads like a song almost, which I adored. This is such a great book for kids!! There are facts on female scientists and Mars at the end, too. THIS IS SO CUTE. A little girl builds a ship to Mars, aiming to be the first one there.

    Sadie Sprocket Builds a Rocket is a bright and cheery book to read.  It empowers all children, but especially girls, to dream of feats they can perform. It stresses the science and math behind most projects without making it seem like learning.  In today's learning environment, we need more heroes like Sadie to inspire children. The rhyming patterns will help early readers sound out the words. I believe between the words, illustrations, and interesting topics; this book will be a hit.

Who wouldn't want to build a rocket and fly to Mars? Annabel Tempest worked her magic once again. The illustrations jump off the page; they are colorful, well-drawn, and appropriate for the book.  I recommend this book to everyone who reads to children, whether it be parents, grandparents, or caregivers. It should be in every daycare, school, and community library.

    Giveaway win! This book was such a cute read. When I was a girl, I was obsessed with space (still am). This book would have been right up my alley as a child! On top of it being an inspiring story for young ones, the illustrations are gorgeous and make the entire book. I will definitely be recommending this book to my friends and family with children, and I can’t wait to pass this one on to my nieces. Five stars!

    Fun story. Sadie is determined to get to Mars and sees no reason that she can’t do it! She gathers her crew, builds a space ship and gets there. She and the team work together to overcome challenges and get home safely. Great “I can do it” story.

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.

    Little Girl Goes to Mars In this brightly colored picture book, Sadie—who has a great love for astronomy—decides to build a rocket ship and be the first to fly to Mars. She encounters some trouble while on the red planet but safely makes it home, to the acclaim of all. The book is told in rhyming couplets that don't quite always scan well. The illustrations are whimsical, but I found myself wishing for more realism because space and its objects are so beautiful.

    Absolutely Adorable! I picked this up on Amazon First Reads to see if it would be right for my nephew, as he's an advancing first-grader, and it's such an adorable read! The errors mentioned in previous reviews have been corrected and I had no issues. The rhyming narrative, colorful artwork & creative storyline just make it an all-around great book. An added bonus is a glossary for the young readers, along with a short history of women involved with space. If you're a theatrical reader, you'll hav Absolutely Adorable!

    Fun from the title to Mars Free First Reads book Jan 2021 (I pretty much only ever pick the children's books). Simple and fun adventure about a young girl traveling to space and Mars. Great imaginative reading to encourage kids to reach for the stars. I loved the title and I love the illustrations (especially the hair bun and helmet), but some of the writing and rhymes missed the mark for me. There's a fact page at the end about Mars and women in space. Our kids will love this. Fun from the title to Mars Free First Reads book Jan 2021 (I pretty much only ever pick the children's books).

    4.5 stars. This was fun! I think I might have LOVED this as a kid, and as an adult I really liked how even though simply written it hinted very accurately at some of the real procedures that are used around space missions. Some really minor quibbles that impeded maximum enjoyment: Using the kindle app on my phone it was really hard to read the small text, especially the notes in the back, and I wasn't able to zoom in like I am on most books. Also, I couldn't believe that in a book about going to 4.5 stars. This was fun!

    Cute science book I mostly read academic nonfiction. Sometimes it's nice to take a break and remind myself that there is more to life than adults arguing over obscure minutiae. This was a cute book encouraging children to become the scientists who will write the new academic arguments, after traveling to Mars of course. The color scheme and shapes used in the illustrations were quite nice. The various knobs on the space shuttle control board were fun.

    A rocket to Imaginationland Cute story about a child who builds a rocket to go to Mars. Art is fair to good and so is the writing. I would say 3.5 stars which for a free first reads book is solid. It is nice to have these to read to break up the longer books that I read most nights for sleepytime. Also, ebooks are nice these days as all our bookshelves are overflowing even with several boxes of donations each christmas.

    Completely unreadable — missing words and pages! Purchased this book on Amazon to read with the Kindle reader software. I don’t know how this failed to be stopped by the Amazon Kindle quality assurance team, but the book has missing words and missing pages. It’s is totally unreadable. Literally a full third of the book (pages) are blank and missing. Do NOT buy this book on Amazon for Kindle!

    Well written and illustrated Read this with my 5 yr old grand daughter. She loved the story and was left wanting more space adventures with Sadie at the end! Well written, colourful, good detail with lots to explore in the illustrations and space themes. We also did role play when Sadie was being interviewed after her Mars adventure ! Great little book that is captivating even for younger children.

    Such a fun and inspiring story with awesome rhythm and rhyme. It'd make a great read aloud for a classroom (little longer for toddler storytimes) especially when talking about space. I love the Mars facts as well as women in space facts at the end. Definitely a great book that fits the theme of Girls in Sciences. You could place this along the lines of Rosie Revere Engineer and The Most Magnificent Thing. So good! Such a fun and inspiring story with awesome rhythm and rhyme.

    Great , Colorful Book I purchased this book and can not wait to read it to my grandchildren. The main character has a fun personality. The colors in the book are bright which will attract young children. The story line is open for discussion about exploring space and focusses on Mars. The story is written in a nice rhythmic style. Great story for young children and early readers.

    This is a lovely rhyming picture book about a little girl who dreams of going to space and makes her dream a reality. The illustrations were a great accompaniment to a really accessible STEM story with heart. There are some good facts about women in space at the back of the book as well. An instant buy for the little ones in my life

    Brilliant! I got this book for my 11 month old baby because he prefers longer reads and it he really enjoyed it! It's an enjoyable story and the rhyming isn't patronising or childish - but it's still very accessible and appropriate. I particularly liked the addition of Sadie's notes in the back which contained some great space facts! I'd definitely recommend this book! Brilliant!

    I received Sadie Sprocket Builds a Rocket with my Prime Membership and I thank Sue Fliess, author. Sadie Sprocket Builds a Rocket is a beautiful science book that is perfect for middle grade children in grade school. It contains information in a cute story that has a basis in science with facts at the end of the story about Mars. Great encouraging science story.

    Cute story about space My son and I enjoyed this story so much. Space and the planets are one of his favorite things. He knew all the planets name by time he was 3. Read this book!! Very cute story. Great ideas too for rainy days to blast off too the moon or whichever plant your little one chooses.

    I've always enjoyed reading children's books, and this one was an exception. Instead of enjoying this short, fully-colored illustrated story, I loved reading it. Sadie Sprocket is a great read for aspiring children who want to learn about our galaxy, the universe and beyond, like I suppose astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson had.

    Nice children’s story This rhyming children’s book focused on a young heroine and her stuffed animal team goin to Mars. It has an uplifting message for young readers especially inspiring girls that such dreams are not unreachable. The story is nice and the illustrations is wonderful. Definitely a children’s book to be read and shared.

    Adorable Cute, nice read good rhyming. Not too long and not horribly short. Perfect bedtime book. It was nice that Sadie accomplished her dream but also encountered some difficulties that she works through in the book. Perseverance is important. Loved the facts at the back of the book also. Art work is perfect

    Inspired a 6 year old girlie girl You know the girl... the one always wearing pink, dresses or sparkly clothes. The one who pretends with dolls and is fiercely a girl? That girl who is incredibly smart, but is under-inspired? This book is absolutely for her. I think Barbie, some LOL and some stuffed animals will be heading to Mars in my house - quite soon!
