A Family Guide to the Night Sky

Who isn’t fascinated by the sheer size of the universe? Stars offers a straightforward guide to what we know and how we know it—from the Big Bang to star nurseries to the beginnings of life on planet Earth.

Included inside:

  • season-by-season guide to stargazing

  • double-sided star chart covering the northern and southern hemispheres

  • pull-out activities, including "Test Your Eyesight" cards and a “What Do You Weigh on Other Planets?” spinning wheel, plus four sheets of stickers
