This book can't quite decide what it wants to be. A book of facts about stars? A book of random words that don't quite rhyme? Inspiration for young astronomers? The illustrations are nice but not outstanding. It may possibly appeal to very young readers (or read-to youngsters), but it is not an inspiring contribution to children's astronomy literature. ( )

Bright Star, Night Star: An Astronomy Story by Karl Beckstrand
Colorful children and adult book about the stars and galaxies.
Starts out with a treasure hunt. Love the picture of all the constellations specified on the next page.
Never knew they also had signs in the constellations. Dark background with handwritten letters makes it difficult to read but the pages can be enlarged.
Love rhyming parts also. So much to learn about them all. Other works by the author are listed at the end. ( )
