Hey-Ho, to Mars We'll Go!: A Space-Age Version of "The Farmer in the Dell"

(3) K-3 Illustrated by Bob Kolar. The familiar children's song is given a space-exploration twist as readers learn what a trip to Mars would entail. Kolar's blocky digital illustrations include three vertical spreads of rockets and spaceships and three spreads of cheerful child-astronauts floating in zero gravity alongside upside-down text. Each portion of the rhyme is accompanied by scientific facts, lending information to the fun. More about Mars exploration is appended. Websites.
