Description

Where do stars go in the daytime? How far away are stars? What stories can they tell us?

Marvel at the mythic stories of the constellations and try finding your own patterns in the sky. Think beyond our sun and wonder what other planets might be circling other stars and what, or who, might be on them. Open the book and blast off to the stars!

"A sure winner for future astronomers and their stargazing parents. Tomecek and newcomer Yoshikawa make an excellent duo in rendering concepts understandable to readers." —Kirkus Reviews
