Exploring Mars (1956)


To celebrate the 12th anniversary of the Dreams of Space blog I bring you exploring the solar system! The February posts are all from children's books exploring the solar system (and maybe a few nearby stars).

Roy Gallant and his illustrator Lowell Hess created some beautiful books about space for children. This one in particular is inspiring in pointing to our future on Mars.

Gallant, Roy A. Illustrated by Hess, Lowell. Exploring Mars. Garden City, NY: Garden City Books. (62 p.) 1956.

Both of these Mars landscapes are beautiful as double page illustrations.

I think the seasons on Mars (as color changes) helps explain how fascinating Mars through a telescope was for many years.
