Product Description

About the Author

Lafcadio has a scale model of the solar system in her living room, and it has been there longer than most of the furniture (since way back when Pluto was still a planet). Lafcadio has been teaching her fellow Earthlings about the various wonders of nature for over ten years, but her favorite subject to teach has always been astronomy. Lafcadio spends most of her time in the Pacific Northwest sleeping, avoiding the sun and learning to make things.

Great learning tool 1 April 2013
By Voracious Reader - Published on
Format: Paperback
My Review: This is a great book for star gazers. I have always had a hard time picking out constellations but the diagrams in this book are great. I have the book on kindle now but the paperback is a must. Great to take the kids out in the yard and learn about the stars. A needed book for all shelves. I give this book a 5 star rating.

For the nascent stargazer, hence the title. 25 Sep 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It's great for beginners, but it didn't help me much. I learned a few tricks I didn't know before but I certainly needed a longer and more in depth book than this. If you're brand new, this thing's awesome. If you are looking for a bit more in depth knowledge, this book is not for you.
Great read 21 Feb 2014

As a beginning stargazer, I picked up this book to help me learn the correct way to observe the stars and planets. This book was great, in that it gave history of how it all started and then explained was to view the night skies. I use a large binocular and tripod, and I can see the craters of the moon on a clear night. Stargazing is a WOW in my book. Check it out.
Good guide for learning how to recognize the constellations 2 Feb 2014

I bought this book because I want to be able to find the constellations. The book has large, clear illustrations of many constellations, which makes finding them easy to do. A very helpful guide to the night sky!
Not what I expected 9 Jan 2014

Thought it would have better pictures. My son seems to have little interest in the book. The search is on for a better book.
