Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-This colorful book offers a solid introduction to its subject. Basic concepts are carefully explained-where stars go during the day, why they seem to rise and set, what one actually looks like, relative heat, distance from the Earth both in light years and miles, etc. An experiment that illustrates the relationship between a star's distance and brightness is included at the end. Done in acrylics and mixed media, Yoshikawa's clear, vivid artwork backs up and extends the text. The clearly labeled diagrams are helpful. This appealing book will help backyard astronomers understand the night sky. Use this title as part of a science unit and pair it with Joanna Cole's The Magic School Bus Lost in the Solar System (Scholastic, 1990) and Seymour Simon's Stars (Morrow, 1986) for a thorough overview of the topic. One small proofreading cavil: on the last page, there is a picture of a mirror that contains a misprint. Irritating, given that it is followed by the injunction to "Think."-Dona Ratterree, New York City Public Schools

From Booklist

K-Gr. 3. Outside at night with his dog, a little boy invites readers to come along and "learn all about the stars!" Well, maybe not all about the stars but probably as much as a young child will want to hear in one sitting is covered in this informative text. As the characters go from one scene to the next, the boy explains ideas such as why the stars seem to disappear during the day, what they look like, and how they vary in size, color, and temperature. He discusses a few constellations as well as the North Star and the Southern Cross. The book ends with an activity that uses flashlights to simulate stars at different distances. Bright, rich colors predominate in the vibrant artwork. Some of the colorful double-page spreads, with illustrated borders surrounding the main pictures, look a bit busy, but they show up well from a distance. Suitable for reading aloud in the classroom, this engaging presentation offers a good start to young children interested in the stars. Carolyn Phelan

I teach 3rd grade. This book does an excellent job explaining everything they need to know about the stars! The pictures are very cute and many students read it again after I read it aloud to the class. So it was perfect!
