KIRKUS REVIEW

 Readers begin their journey through the galaxy first by identifying the Big Dipper, then by finding other constellations in the sky. Through the friendly question-and-answer format of the A Question of Science series, readers learn how constellations were named and how they were (and are) used to tell time and find directions. Simple instructions for locating various constellations ensure junior astronomers success in their initial attempts. Full- color photographs and playful illustrations add to the sense of fun and exploration that permeates the book, with its often delightful, always accessible explanations of the night sky. (glossary) (Picture book. 5-8)
