Abstract:

A charming exploration of the night sky complete with a star finder and glow-in-the-dark stickers is the perfect introduction to the always fascinating world of astronomy. This revised edition of the best-selling A Child's Introduction to the Night Sky includes the latest NASA mission, newly discovered stars, and more. Author Michael Driscoll explains how stars are born, the achievements of the great scientists, the history of space exploration, the story of our solar system, the myths behind the constellations, how to navigate the night sky, and more. Kids will find out what astronomers have learned (and are still discovering), what astronauts and scientists explore, and what they can find by gazing up into the sky at night. Whimsical color illustrations throughout and handy definitions and sidebars help engage young readers and a handy star finder tool and fun glow-in-the-dark stickers allow them to explore even more!
