Kelsey Osoid has taken her childhood experience of planetariums, science and museums to create a truly thorough and fascinating book. ‘What We See In The Stars‘ is an illustrated history and fact-filled information trove of astronomy. We learn about the ancients’ views and interpretation of the solar system including links to mythology and belief. The constellations are described and shown in such clear detail, that even this Bookwagon reader, has a hope of identification.
Areas of the moon, the power and composition of the sun, identifiable variations between our planets, meteors. comets and asteroids, are explored and explained so clearly. The writer moves into ‘deep space’ a prospect that clearly does not daunt her, for her research is so well defined and demonstrated.
This is a wonderful guidebook. It is appealing, interesting and offers something long-lasting in its relevance, composition and structure. We have taken a long time to find a really good astronomy book, and in ‘What We See In The Stars‘ we think we’ve hit our Saggitarius mark!
From its size and shape to its structure, ‘What We See In The Stars‘ is a user-friendly, readable and fascinating exploration of all things astronomical. Real respect for the reader is evident. The information is clear, direct, and thorough. We are delighted to have found this superb information book. We recommend it to readers in families and schools, aged from 8 or 9 or 10 years old, and more.
