Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Bright twinkling stars in the night sky awe and interest youngsters. This title in the "Amazing Science" series explains how and why stars appear as spots of light. Nine chapters take readers on a journey which includes concise information on the energy, differences, and colors of stars. Additionally, the text tells about our own star, the sun; constellations; galaxies; and the Milky Way. Fun facts found on every spread impart a bit more information about stars. Colorful illustrations depict cute kids who are learning about stars. End matter consists of a dot-to-dot activity for readers to try on their own, some extra star facts, a glossary, other sources, and an index. Teachers will find this book useful because it can be read independently or used as a classroom supplement to science lessons on stars. Picture Windows Books consulted with an educator familiar with NASA classroom programs and a literacy educator to gather information for this book. 2006, Picture Window Books, Ages 5 to 9.
