A Few Reviews:
‘A fine job of encouraging young people to look at stars and constellations. . . . Highly recommended as a science resource book.” —Science and Children
“A dandy book for [primary grade] readers.” —AP
“We have a small library of the Lets Read and Find Out series, so we knew we would like the book. Even with that, we were pleasantly surprised with this one. It is about constellations more than different kinds of stars. Our first experiences with stars are with the bright points in the sky and the patterns they make. It takes a telescope and some experience to be interested in differentiating the types of stars. The Sky is Full of Stars has information little ones can identify with” – Amazon Reviewer
“The Sky Is Full of Stars is an excellent and informatiive book for primary age kids. It gives lots of information about the night sky and constellations in an easy to understand format for children. Kids can take this book outside and find constellations following the directions in the book. I can’t wait to use it in my second grade classroom!” –Amazon Reviewer
