Magical—that's the word for the night sky, with its shining stars, glittering planets, and sometimes, the celestial moon. So go ahead—make a wish on that star. But if you're also curious about why your star twinkles, you've come to the right place. By focusing on one small square of night sky near Orion, The Night Sky makes star time even more special for children. Its stunning illustrations and kid-oriented approach provide an exciting close-up on wonders that can be seen overhead after dark. Suitable for stargazing antywhere—even the city—The Night Sky will add to kids' wonder as it teaches them about stars, planets, nebulae, comets, meteors, the moon, constellations, and classic myths—through one small square of the night sky.
