This is a nonfiction book that is read similar to a fiction book because the illustrations within the book tell a story. This book provides basic information about stars. It talks about when is the best time to see them throughout the year, constellations, how stars appear to move across the sky as the year progresses, and it even gives an activity on how to make home-made constellations.
I think that this could be a very valuable resource to use when teaching about outer space. The illustration

One of my childhood favorites. It contains beautiful illustrations by Felicia Bond with a few photographs of the night sky. There's a cute story within the educational context of kids riding their bikes out to look at the constellations before returning home and creating their own star patterns using coffee cans and flashlights. It's a great first book on astronomy for kids.
This book was interesting for me about the stars and how they got their names, where they are located in the night sky and other facts, but it was a bit too much for my 4 & 5 year olds. They liked the pictures of the constellations and figuring out what animals they looked like, but they were restless in other parts of the book where they were on information overload for their age.
This is a nice little book with illustrations of stars and constellations including the zodiac signs. I would use it to teach astronomy.
A superb book that juxtaposes mythology w/ science.
