"To me this book has a dreamlike approach to its subject matter with bits and pieces that make a an overall enjoyable presentation of how space looks and seems in young, developing minds. It gives a subtle impression of both the comprehensive but also vastness of space. I like impressionistic books and stories, but I still like a specific story as well. Great job on the book." - Author Brian Wilson
"This is such a bright educational book with lessons especially for the preschooler. Fun to read and listen to." - Author Patricia Potts
"Kids like rhyme and rhythm and this book has both, not to mention a subject matter kids are discovering at ever younger ages. I really like the way Karl uses words. ... I really enjoyed the book and look forward to other such books by Karl. He is in touch with what children enjoy. Keep up the good work." - Author David Christensen

My Rating: 5 stars
Colorful children and adult book about the stars and galaxies.
Starts out with a treasure hunt. Love the picture of all the constellations specified on the next page.
Never knew they also had signs in the constellations. Dark background with handwritten letters makes it difficult to read but the pages can be enlarged.
Love rhyming parts also. So much to learn about them all. Other works by the author are listed at the end.
The rhymes are good. And I'm patient. We can take it one page at a time.
I fail to see how this is multicultural. Yeah, the illustration of the child isn't Lily white. But if you want to stress the cultural factor, use stories or legends from the culture you illustrate.
