She shares her love of the stars in the Dot to Dot in the Sky series, which combines the science of the night sky with the ancient myths that give the constellations and planets their names.

Deborah Lightfoot Hi, Joan! Thanks for your friend request.

Love your books! I just ordered the Stars, Zodiac, and Planets books in your Dot-to-Dot series. I love astronomy, and these books will be perfect for introducing my niece and nephews to this subject.

Write on! Deborah
