Reach for the stars, with this beautiful glow-in-the-dark guide to the science and mythology behind the constellations.


Children will see the stars shining brightly right in their own room with this glow-in-the-dark introduction to the night sky. Each constellation sparkles brilliantly on the page, thanks to the special ink that illuminates the lush artwork. And even as the luminous illustrations encourage stargazing, the kid-friendly text presents a perfect mix of simple science and storytelling. Along with very basic astronomical facts about our galaxy and the major constellations are the world myths of the gods and heroes whose names grace today's star maps. Take the tale of Andromeda--the princess sacrificed to save her father's kingdom who lives in the long, curved "V" of stars best seen in late fall. With information on constellations from Cygnus the Swan to Orion the Hunter, it's an appealing, interactive approach to a popular subject.

A really good guide to really see the stars.

Really fun to have the constellations on each page glow in the dark. The stories are pretty brief, but obviously written for someone older than my three-year-old because they weren't particularly riveting renditions.
