Good information on stars

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2009-03-24) Very Good Permalink

Not only will one learn what a star is, but they will also learn how the stars we see make constellations. The information in the book tells that there are different types of stars and what they are made up of.  The photographs have bright and vivid colors that would excite any reader.
