I read this as a child, but didn't remember a whole lot about it until I re-read it with my older son (when he was in 4th gr) and my husband for an online book group of ours. It's an interesting late 40's look at what we thought about Mars. I love the big cabbage and the ideas Heinlein had about Martians (which could have been applied to any other intelligent life forms from anywhere). It starts somewhat slowly, but gets much more compelling by the 2nd half. I didn't like the sexism, but that was just a sign of the times.
