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.
