Again the illustrations capture the imagination immediately. This book was chosen for the stories about the stars which could be read as bedtime stories or for reading by a slightly older child.

Ideal to read aloud to approx age 6-7. Kids loved the stories.
Detailed pictures and the glittery stars added detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introductory book 29 Sept. 2005
By cap61801 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was read to my 4 yo at preschool and she absolutely loved it. This book was all she talked about that night so I bought this book, Zoo in the Sky, and Kingdom of the sun. She loves looking at the pictures and discussing which constellations we can see here in NJ. Unfortunately, the one she wants to see the most, Hercules, is in the southern sky so I guess we'll have to take a trip south of the equator!!

5.0 out of 5 stars great introduction to some of the great stories 28 Jan. 2007
By light october - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Across each two page spread Once Upon a Starry Night introduces a different constellation, gives a brief synopsis of the story, and provides a beautiful illustration with foil stars imbedded. The first four constellations are linked by story line, which also draws the children in (what happened next...?). A great book for preschool up and coffee table beautiful.

By JB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love the illustrations of this book. And the words are well written so that it can keep the kids interested. I have a 3yo and a 5yo and they love looking at the pictures and listening to the words. And we all learn something new about the constellations.

5.0 out of 5 stars companion to a constellations map 3 Nov. 2010
By Washinton, D.C. mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this for my 6 year-old niece to accompany a globe that also lit up to show the constellations. This is a nicely written book of some of the more popular constellations. Even adults can learn! She really likes it.
