If they are, chances are you'll be able to spot the Big Dipper. The Big Dipper is one of the easiest constellations to recognize and this Let's-Read-and-Find-Out Science book will help young stargazers find it, and it's companion, the Little Dipper. And once you've begun to learn about the constellations, well, the sky's the limit!

This new edition of a book first published in 1962 is an excellent introduction to the night sky and star gazing. The beauty of this book is its simplicity and the high percentage of success a young reader would have following its directions. — AP.
