Description according to GoodReads, “A richly illustrated guide to the myths, histories, and science of the celestial bodies of our solar system, with stories and information about constellations, planets, comets, the northern lights, and more.
Combining art, mythology, and science, What We See in the Stars gives readers a tour of the night sky through more than 100 magical pieces of original art, all accompanied by text that weaves related legends and lore with scientific facts. This beautifully packaged book covers the night sky’s most brilliant features–such as the constellations, the moon, the bright stars, and the visible planets–as well as less familiar celestial phenomena like the outer planets, nebulae, and deep space. Adults seeking to recapture the magic of youthful stargazing, younger readers interested in learning about natural history and outer space, and those who appreciate beautiful, hand-painted art will all delight in this charming book.”
Since this was a very short book I am just going to write a short little review on it:
- It was SOOO pretty
- The information that was presented reminded me of being in a classroom but at the same time being outside in the night looking at the sky.
- In my opinion I believe that this book is enjoyable for all ages: Children to Adults.
- This book reminds you of your childhood when you listened to you parents/ Guardians/ Elders about the night sky and all the mysterious it holds.
- The only thing that I didn’t like about his book was that it didn’t have a fold out map of the night sky. But it didn’t really sway my opinion on the book.
I gave this book a 5/5 Stars.
