Title: Sky Gazing: A Guide to the Moon, Sun, Planets, Stars, Eclipses, and Constellations
Author: Meg Thatcher
This was a cute and informative book about space! The information was descriptive but easy to understand and grasp. The book was also packed with beautiful photographs and illustrations. I especially enjoyed the photos of the nebulas and surfaces of the planets and moon.
What I really loved about this book though was the how to’s and activities within it! Things like how to make a star wheel, or use binoculars to view stars is not something I would think about but it makes a wonderful addition to the book. I think it will really help kids get excited about space and viewing the stars. Heck I wanted to do some of the activities.
Another great part of this book was the inclusion of star stories from different cultures like the Native Americans, Polynesians, and Chinese. This is a great way to teach kids about different cultures and history.
Overall this was a beautiful written and illustrated book for kids! I am totally recommending this book to my nieces and hopefully they will become interested in space.
