52 months - O was excited to read some books about the stars and constellations after exploring nebulas with Dad on the iPad and looking at the stars while camping. She enjoyed the illustrations and we spent a bit of time looking at the end leaf pages with images of the north and south skies. The text gives a hint of the stories behind each of the characters depicted but could have used an introduction to how they were named or why. ( )

The glittering stars are attractive and the paintings have a folksy beauty, but the book as a whole feels a little thin and rushed to me. Nevertheless, for a young library patron exploring the stars, this wouldn't be a bad place to start. ( )
