There is a lot good about this book, it really does teach you how to find Orion, but on the Big Digger it fails with no answer key. I found that very disappointing, and it took a lot of steam of my sails for this book. Finally a bit later I continued on and found that error again...so I would have to say, it's ok with those caveats.
