Meet the Author

As a child, Joan Marie Galat spent hours gazing up at the night sky from snow forts and through car windows on long road trips. She shares her love of the stars in the Dot to Dot in the Sky series, which combines the science of the night sky with the ancient myths that give the constellations and planets their names.

    A Planetary Marvel!

    This book was fun, interesting and educational in the usual GALAT style. I learned some interesting Greek stories as well as I now have a better understanding of where to locate the planets.

    What a Great Classroom Resource!

    In effortless, down-to-earth style Galat introduces us to the stories behind the names of the planets. This book is useful across the curriculum: a great way to hook young astronomers into Social Studies and Language Arts, or young historians into Science, or Social buffs into art. Galat passes the ultimate test for children's literature - its appeal to adults and children alike - with flying colours.
