Anthony in SF, November 18, 2011 (view all comments by Anthony in SF)
This is a lovely book and an excellent introduction to skywatching and astronomy for children and adults. The book is thoughtfully organized, beautifully laid out, and lavishly illustrated. The authors explain the material in simple language that is understandable to children but not condescending to adults. I have a copy myself and I'm buying another as a gift. I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the night sky.
