Title: A Child's Introduction to the Night Sky the Study of the Stars, Planets and Constellations - and How You Can Find Them in the Sky
Description: New York: Black Dog & Leventhal Publishers, 2004. Hardcover. Illustrated by Meredith Hamilton. The study of the sky and all of the objects and forces up there is called astronomy. This book is a great introduction to what astronomers have learned, and are still discovering, what astronauts and scientists explore - and what you and your child can find by gazing up at the sky at night. You'll learn about how stars are born, how planets move through the sky, and just where we are within the big galaxy we call home, the Milky Way. You'll learn about eclipses, the phases of the moon, and what a comet's tail is made of. Included are the names and shapes of starry constellations along with the stories - sometimes called myths - that were invented to help explain and identify them. Included with this fun book are a star wheel guide to the constellations and glow-in-the-dark stickers of the solar system. The dust jacket is foil over paper; the spine ends are sllightly bent and the bottom edges have light edgewear. A 1/2" tear at the bottom back. At the back fold there is a small tear. The binding is nighttime blue with stars and comets, planets and the space shuttle (I think). ; Color Illustrations; 4to 10" - 13" tall; 93 pages. Fine in Very Good dust jacket .
