    wake up - the stars are out!!

    As an adult I really enjoyed the detail and the space notes, as a mom I really, really enjoyed sitting in the backyard at night with my kids!! The notes made it very easy to find the constellations and the layout made it easy to read by flashlight. I have donated a copy to our school library and sent copies to relatives young and old alike! My daughter is autistic and finds concentrating difficult, the style of the book captivated her and helped her learn about the stars. It was easy reading and informative.

    finally having fun with the sky

    This book that my son is reading for his school curriculum caught my eye, and when I picked it up I couldn't put it down. How terrific to be able to understand AND enjoy a lesson of stories on the constellations. I highly recommend this book for amateur and avid star gazers.

    Five Stars for a Book ABOUT Stars

    This is the best book I've ever seen for teaching kids or adults how to find stars and identify constellations in the night sky. It's apparently geared to kids of about age twelve, but I haven't been twelve for over thirty years and I enjoyed and learned from this book. The writing is clear and precise with neat little sidebars that give additional scientific information to the text. Refreshingly, the quality of the illustrations, paper and layout is tremendous. No cutting corners here. This is a first-class book! If this new release doesn't get picked up for classroom use, our educators are asleep.

    better than any other introduction to the stars

    I so enjoyed reading about the stars and learned much more than I expected. The space notes were great, as were the drawings of the dots. Highly recomended reading.
