Description

Long ago people gazed into the night sky and created star pictures - and mythical stories to explain them. Today we call these ancient star pictures constellations. This introduction to the night sky presents a perfect mix of simple science and storytelling, with child-friendly text and illustrations that are illuminated by special glow-in-the-dark ink. Along with basic astronomical facts about our galaxy and the major constellations are the myths of the gods and heroes whose names grace today's star maps. Enjoy stories of the goddess Callisto, who was turned into a bear and of Hercules, the strongest man who ever lived or create your own constellation or a box full of stars. Constellations is an appealing, interactive approach to a popular subject.
