Spark our littlest learners’ interest in the night sky!
“The stars in the sky help scientists, and also point the way. Certain groups of stars tell a story, or tell us the month and day.”
For thousands of years, the stars have filled humankind with wonder. They have pointed the way, helped us tell time, and best of all, told us stories. Now, curious kids can explore the night sky with Stories in the Sky: Constellations. From Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, Leo the Lion, Orion the Hunter, and more, ten of the most popular and easiest-to-find constellations in the night sky are featured with beautiful illustrations that show the stars in the constellation as well as a cute rendering of the animal or person it represents. The fun, rhyming text introduces the ancient Greek or Roman character most often associated with the constellation, and the fun facts on each spread include basic information about where and when to find each of them.
What a fun way to learn about constellations. Each page layout shows the constellation along with it’s story. There’s also a fun fact on each page giving you direction as to when you can find it or a stand out attribute to help locate. The story is told in rhymes making it engaging for the children. Paired with gorgeous illustrations. I love being able to learn new things right along with my son and this book is no exception. The book is the perfect size for toddlers and it’s very sturdy.
Little Genius Books have put out some of our all time favorite books. Each and every one is educational. Definitely want to check them out if you have younger children.
