While many of the night sky activities in this book, subtitled “Exploring Nature After Dark with Activities, Experiments and Information,” are more applicable for children who live in the country than for urban dwellers, older students will enjoy browsing this compendium of facts about astronomy and animals. Moon-watching, stargazing, information on nocturnal animals, bioluminescence, night flowering plants, night migration, and more are discussed. Activities include dissecting an owl pellet, measuring plant growth, and making a simple star scope. Interesting and practical. (diagrams, index) (Nonfiction 8-12)
