3.0 out of 5 stars | Ademar Reis
Not practical if you plan to actually look at the skies

The book is not practical. The way it's split is confusing and there are no pictures of what one should expect to see in a telescope or binoculars. In fact, many of the pictures are from large telescopes (or even space telescopes), creating false expectations on kids. I guess it's ok as a book to be used indoors to talk about space, but not practical if you're looking for something as a guide to stargazing.

8 year old plus!

A little advanced for younger kids... My son is into it just not as basic for a 5 year old.... It's more for 8 plus

My Niece Loves this Book

I bought this for my niece for her 6th birthday and she absolutely LOVES it. She regularly has her 9 year old brother go through the book with her. Very well written and easy to understand for young kids.

Great resource for my students!

I was so excited when this book arrived! I love how well organized it is. It is easy to follow, whether my students and I are reading for in-depth information, or just browsing through the "That's so cool!" sections to find interesting tidbits. I especially like the helpful hints that we astronomy novices need--vocabulary terms defined, as well as easy ways to measure angles in the sky. Now we can find what you are describing. Thanks, Dr. Betts, for writing such a wonderful book!

Toddlers love- age appropriate as stated

Great for toddlers. They are curious and have such ability to understand and want to experiment! Loved it, as my grandchildren did, 3 and 5! they want to go outside and actually see these. Also toys, stickers! (Cavet though day care has taught shapes with actual cut outs. They love and can easily basic star, moon, sun, etc.

Very detailed and simple

I love how simple but also very detailed this book is. I bought my husband a telescope for Christmas and got this for the kids to help them be a part of his astronomy experience. They love looking through it together.
