Stargazing for Kids
You’ve gazed at stars. Perhaps you’ve even identified a few constellations, planets, and other distant objects. Now become a young astronomer. Learn all about outer space. Author, educator, and naturalist Jonathan Poppele presents a kids’ introduction to the night sky. The children’s book, ideal for early and middle-grade readers, conveys fascinating information for beginners. Kids gain an understanding of our atmosphere, our solar system, and deep sky objects.
A season-by-season tour of the night sky provides advice to help children experience success while stargazing with practical tips on locating each constellation. There are also fun activities for the entire family to enjoy, a wonderful way to turn stargazing into a shared hobby. The activities range from simple, like creating a “night vision” flashlight, to advanced, such as going on a camping trip.
