Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Scientists study the sky, but so can young children with the help of My First Field Guide. The book shows you what to look for as well as provides stickers to help keep track of what you have seen. Observations are suggested that can be made at night or during the day. It's a nice small format that fits easily in small hands. Kids like stickers and by allowing young readers to place the stickers makes the experience with the book more interactive. The objects or phenomenon mentioned in the book include the sun, sunsets and sunrises, clouds, using the sun to tell time, rainbows and the moon. The most easily visible constellations and planets are identified. There is an interesting experiment to understand the concept of light pollution and why it's hard to see stars in the middle of the city. There are always new things to learn about the sky and space. This is a nice, thoughtful introduction to stargazing for young children. 2002, Grosset & Dunlap,
