Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I was given this book for free to review. My husband loves astronomy so I am always looking for books that can help teach our son in creative ways. I found that this book does just that. Cleverly written, it uses astronomy vocabulary with engaging pictures. There was just one page where the rhyming stopped and the text seemed forced, but other than that I loved it.
Great book for young inquiring minds. I believe it will motivate some of the brightest minds to pursue science and astronomy.Check out the online secrets. More interesting information for young and old.
It is fun book to read! My granddaughters loved finding the constellations throughout the book. There are pictures in the book that don't seem to fit the theme, but other than that it is fun to read. We like it!
