Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
For would be astronomers, Ford, an astronomer, offers some excellent tips such as covering your flashlight with red cellophane when you look at notes and maps because the filtered light will not disturb your dark-adapted eyes, a sample of a page for taking notes and recording observations, and instructions for making your own telescope. Kids can make a model of the solar system, map the stars and plenty more. At the end of the book there are addresses for further information, a glossary and an index and the endpapers are filled with interesting statistics about the stars and planets. Full color illustrations and general instructions or directions are offered for each project.
