Children's Night Sky Atlas by Robin Scagell

Book Review

Children's Night Sky Atlas by Robin Scagell (DK, 2004).

Ages 8 and up

This book is packed with cool features. The coolest - unique among the children's astronomy books in our collection - are the photographs of the night sky with transparent overlays that trace out the constellations. There are only six of them, but they help make the leap between the abstract line drawings of constellations kids usually see in books, and the real night sky littered with all those "extra" stars.

Like most DK books, this one has beautiful color photographs and a visually exciting layout with interesting "sound bite" information. All in all a nice introduction to star gazing and astronomy.
