Format:Hardcover
I am SERIOUS when I say this is just the absolute absolute best book I own!! I cannot stop reading about myself in my own sign chapter and neither can my two best friends. It is so accurate you will flip! Plus it tells you about your boyfriend, your parents, new best friends, your cat or dog, your best colors to wear, the best days for you to take exams, your sister or brother, your history, etc, etc. Fully RECOMMENDED FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO Be TRULY IN THE KNOW.

5.0 out of 5 stars A self-confidence builder for your child 31 Mar 2004
Format:Hardcover
The author has said that her interest in astrology began when she was seven years old because it gave her access to a secret door inside herself, and helped her to understand those action places in herself that she had known all along but could never find the words for. Her aim when writing this book was to help other children to do the same, to build their confidence through teaching them to see what is special and unique in them, and to give them a better understanding of themselves and those around them. All the information is presented clearly and in an amusing way.
Madalyn goes through the astrological signs with a summing up of their qualities, and insights as to how that sign might behave or feel in different areas of their life, and what they might expect from others of that sign around them. Sections include, "Which signs you groove with: which signs you don't', 'With your family', and 'your teachers', 'In the playground', 'With your friends', ''in school', and 'How to spot…' She also lists celebrities born under each sign, describes the nature of the ruling planet, draws on Greek and Roman myths to show temperament and tendencies and has included in each chapter a quote from a child of that particular sign with their views on life or themselves. There is a spinner wheel on the back page which gives the elements for each sign and the book is indexed with tabs so that it is easy to find any particular chapter. I cannot remember the last time I saw a book so beautifully illustrated, and as I read it I found myself making a list of friends' children who might like it for a present.

By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
A well laid out and easy to read book, written in language that children today can relate to. Full of relevant information laid out in a format that is easy for anybody to understand. No superstitious mumbo-jumbo, but a fairly detailed explanation of a popular subject that is all too often misunderstood or approached from a superficial level i.e. via horoscope columns.
A book I was happy to give to my teenage daughter.
