Format: Hardcover
To Ann Love And Jane Drake
The wealth of information, the simple, clear layout and the activity ideas are a goldmine for anyone teaching Grade 6 Science and Language in Ontario. The book can be used on so many levels. I see its value as a quick reference, a source of non-fiction passages, a source of accessible, useful activities requiring easily available materials, a fascinating means for non-astronomer teachers to inform themselves quickly so that they can teach the material in an inspiring way to their classes. It is also a book that will excite any young person with a curiosity about the world around him.
You've filled a real need for educators with this book. I've bought one for myself and for two other teachers who will use it well.
THANK-YOU!
You're stars in MY book!

Originally bought this for our 5 yr old grandson who loves astronomy. We read an excerpt from it every night and learn something new each time. It's fun to read something meant for a child and actually enjoy what you're reading -- instead of the same silly story every night. This book is easy to understand with fantastic stories. Highly recommend!

I purchase this book for my grandchildren. They like to go camping and this is a great for explaining the night skys on a level they can enjoy. Would recommend it.

I was really exicted about getting this book for my 8 year old son afer reading the reivews. When I got it, I was not all that excited. None of the pictures are in color and it doesn't seem all that engaging to read. I would have preferred a different book but will still give it to my son with his new telescope. Hopefully he will enjoy it.

I bought this book for my grandchildren to go along with their telescopes. It was really great. It explains the constellations by telling the stories of their origins.

bought this for granddaughter. Disappointed that I was unable to see inside book before ordering. I would have opted for a book illustrated in color.

I was asked to buy a present about space for my very bright 5 year old grandson who is reading very well. I read the reviews and thought this book would be great but apart from being to advanced for him, I found the presentation dull and the articles aimed at wildly differing age ranges. I have put it aside and give it to him in a couple of years time.

Marvelous book for children grade 3 and up for introduction to astronomy.
Great for discussions around the dinner table. Easy to understand and translate to the night sky with a parent.
