Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Stars form pictures that people have gazed at in the night sky for thousands of years. Read to find out facts and history about constellations. Some of the Greek myths about the constellations are briefly presented. Learn the difference between constellations and asterisms. Look at some of the tools that early astronomers used to study the stars. There are photographs, illustrations, and diagrams throughout the book. In the table of contents, there is a guiding question noted for each chapter. Pronunciation guides are in the main text for some words. Bold print words in the main text are listed and defined in the glossary; the index includes and differentiates the text and illustrations. Younger students may need some guidance and support with the informational text features like navigating the multiple captions for the pictures. This book is part of "A True Book" series which covers space and other topics. At the back of the book, there is a resource list of books, web sites, and places to explore for more information.
