Where Are the Stars during the Day?: A Book about Starsby Melvin Berger, Gilda Berger
This comprehensive look at planets, constellations, and the universe covers such topics as the chemical makeup of stars and how to find heavenly bodies in the night sky.
School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 3 - 5-- An informal, easy - to-read introduction to the stars, the sun, and the constellations. Falling between a picture-book format and a slightly more complex treatment such as E. C. Krupp's The Big Dipper and You (Morrow, 1989), the Bergers' text simplifies and explains complicated concepts. The title question is answered with a good comparison to watching movies in a dark theater and having the pictures ``disappear'' when someone opens a door and lets in light. Hydrogen atoms, the planets, constellations, the Milky Way, and more are illustrated in lively, full-color cartoon drawings. There are no chapter divisions, the questions posed are not set off in the text, and the answers do not always immediately follow. Nevertheless, it's a readable addition. --Frances E. Millhouser, Reston Regional Library, VA
