Book Description

6 May 2004
It's not always easy to find the 88 constellations, but this illustrated guidebook will lead you through the stars and make gazing at them a more meaningful experience. Two larger maps portray the entire northern and southern sky, and all the constellations in it. Because the stars put on different "seasonal shows," another set charts the changes that take place in the heavens during the year. Still more pictures present a close-up view of every single constellation, filled with detail. (You'll see an image of the real or imaginary creature it's named after, too.) And, there's so much great information accompanying the super visuals: facts on how far away the stars really are, other interstellar phenomena, the history of every constellation and how they got their names, and the best way to do your star searching. "A Selection of Children's Book-of-the-Month Club."

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful 23 Aug 2008
By Megan Heavens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I teach 3rd grade and one of the standards is that they have to know different constellations. This book was very helpful to give the stories behind the constellations' names. They enjoyed the pictures and the myths.

This book is a big hit in our house. It is great for the child who really likes to watch and learn about the stars and can also grab the interest of someone who is new to the constellations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 8 Aug 2012
By Michael Sawayda - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great book that tells the stories of the constellations. Each has some background regarding who named them and some of the legends surrounding each. I had never heard of some of the constellations listed. In the back, it shows you a map of where to look in the sky to find each constellation, along with the time of year to look.

I got this book for my 6 year old daughter. She loves looking at the pictures and we read the stories to her. It's a bit wordy, but she loves it.

I love this book! It has beautiful pictures and lots of good information about the stories behind the star constellations and individual stars. I used it quite a lot when I was studying the constellations in the Southern Hemisphere. Totally recommend it.
