There Was An Old Martian Who Swallowed the Moon


There Was An Old Martian Who Swallowed the Moon written by Jennifer Ward and illustrated by Steve Gray (2015)

In the classic style of the old woman who swallowed a fly, this martian is zipping and zooming all over the universe to fill his belly. He swallows the moon, a cow, a comet, a spaceship, a rover,and even Mars. But when he swallows the sun… he’s done!


Skip the potatoes and pass the moon please. Scoop it up with a spoon and beep – beep your way across the galaxy. Catch the rhythm and blast off with this cute little Martian into another cumulative digestive rhyme!

Afterwards try a little out-of-this-world cooking of your own. You may find more than one treat you want to eat. Just be sure you don’t bite off more than you can chew!

Start your day off with Breakfast Moon. Serve up a nice warm helping of oatmeal. Dig in with a spoon!oatmeal-19_thumb

Add more treats throughout the day.
