Finding the Constellations is a great introduction to star-gazing, by the author of Curious George. With clear and concise explanations of concepts such as light years, star magnitude as well as updated information about the planets, H. A. Rey makes astronomy both fascinating and easy to learn. Rey creates side-by-side sky views–one with lines connecting the stars in the constellations–one without the lines, so that your child can practice finding the constellations when they are surrounded by other stars. In the back of the book Rey includes a guide to finding the planets, as well as a list of the first stars which rise in each month of the year.
