KIRKUS REVIEW

An excellent introduction to the heavens, to satisfy and stimulate a child's interest. Known primarily for the Curious George and other picture books, H. A. Rey is a scientist too and offers his method of star study with a practical clarity. Familiar constellations are named and identified with interstellar lines drawn to make the figures. Seasonal panoramas of northern hemisphere skies place the stars and planets in relationship to each other and as the need arises, the physical facts-light years, planetary orbits, magnitudes and so forth- are explained. Index, sky schedules, bibliography, handiness for outdoor use, and the author's explicit, striking two tones are the further virtues of a very useful book.
