Designed for the astronomically inclined, Charles Hobson's Seeing Stars is one stellar tool kit. Inside, 10 die-cut cards feature depictions of the constellations as diagrammed by Greek astronomers. Turned over, they reveal the constellations as seen from Earth. Youngsters can create starlight in a darkened room by beaming the matchbox-thin flashlight (included) at the card. A handbook retells the Andromeda myth and tells how to locate the Great Bear, the Little Bear and Orion's Belt in the night sky. (Chronicle, $14.95 ages 8-up ISBN 0-8118-3205-8; Oct.)

We adore looking at these every night before bed. Using this in conjunction with Google Sky has made stargazing more fun for my son.Published on September 2, 2013 by MamaBooks
The cards and book that come with this are nice, but the credit card-sized flashlight is so flimsy and breaks so easily that it's not worth the money. Read morePublished on June 19, 2003
