Night sky adventures

The Kids Book of the Night Sky
by Ann Love & Jane Drake

A lively combination of clearly written text, myths, legends, jokes, and activities provide an excellent introduction to the night sky. Brief information about the sun, the moon, the stars, and the planets are interspersed with step-by-step directions for making a planisphere, sighting tube, star clock, and planet plotter. Seasonal sky maps and easy-to-follow instructions help kids find the constellations, while star games, zodiac stories, even recipes, keep learning fun.
