School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2‘A simple introduction to stars and constellations. The text is straightforward and supported and expanded by full-color illustrations. Though no "special ways to look at an eclipse without hurting your eyes" are explained, the clear illustration is almost self-explanatory and should encourage readers to ask questions. Books such as Gail Gibbons's Stargazers (Holiday, 1992) and Sidney Rosen's How Far Is a Star? (Carolrhoda, 1992) should be available for readers who want to learn more. As a beginning reader, Stars is a good springboard for budding astronomers.‘Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID (c) Copyright 2010.
