    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!

    As someone who tends to read a lot of serious titles, I have to admit that whenever the Amazon First Reads program gives what looks like a fun children's story I can't resist the opportunity to check it out.

Sue Fliess tells us an engaging story with cheery and upbeat rhyming text, while Tempest's illustrations are quirky yet immersive. Even reading this book on an Amazon Fire was an absolutely wonderful experience. "Sadie Sprocket Builds a Rocket" is ultimately a story about dreaming big and reaching for the stars.

    I applaud this rhyming story of a space-girl and her exciting journey to the stars and beyond. The comic-book style illustrations are colorful animated and child-like, and they really bring the character of Sadie to life. I thought that in places, the rhyme scheme of the poem was a little inconsistent, but this was not invasive and did not spoil the fun, feel-good atmosphere of this creative tale. This early beginner reader has some complex vocabulary, however, and I would like to see a Glossary I applaud this rhyming story of a space-girl and her exciting journey to the stars and beyond.

"Sadie's Notebook" at the end of the book is an excellent resource, giving young readers information about girl pioneers in Space Science. I like the fact it looks informal, which makes it appealing, entertaining and accessible. It reads like a kind of journal. This book is ideal as an introduction to Space and Astronomy and may be useful to homeschoolers; teachers of the gifted and talented as well as parents.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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).

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I adore this cute little book but we made the mistake of picking up the Kindle version, which has typos and missing letters. Thankfully my little isn't to the point of reading herself, or it'd be unusable completely. But I will be purchasing a physical copy instead.

    Nice pictures, great rhyming I read this to my grandson. He very much enjoyed the pictures. The rhyming was great and was very smooth. I loved the Sadie character and how sure of herself she came across.

    Very sweet story My kids and I loved this short story. The pictures were adorable and writing flowed nicely. We especially loved the facts in the back of the book. The editing was a bit odd with some letters missing. Other than that would highly recommend this book!

    We enjoyed this book about Sadie Sproket the space explorer - especially since she does not give up and keeps trying. The only complaint is some words were missing letters, not sure if it was a typo or final image editing issue.

    Cute, Hard to read on phone The story was cute, the formatting was lacking. We ended up passing the phone back and forth. She would have loved it a lot more if the formatting was like the other children's books. Cute, Hard to read on phone The story was cute, the formatting was lacking.

    Error prone kindle edition Art is good. The book had tons of print errors and missing letters. That is unfortunate as our kid liked the content. But it is frustrating for them and they shouldn’t have to fill in those kinds of gaps as young readers.

    Spunky and energetic, this rhyming book is about a girl who decides to fly to Mars. I love the bright colors and Sadie's cheery attitude. It is a book about dreaming big and making it happen. The back also includes extra facts about Mars and women in space. It is a solid STEM read aloud. Spunky and energetic, this rhyming book is about a girl who decides to fly to Mars.

    Super cute! The story is very cute. I'm not sure why there are others who couldn't see all the words and letters, but maybe they were using a different app. I used the Kindle app for android and didn't have any issues. Super cute!

    This would have been a cute story but..... Some words were not proof read, words in colors were too light and blended with white. I was sad it was proofread.
