We took a family trip to a planetarium last year. The boy child swears that I liked it the most of anyone in the family. (I totally did) But it did give us the 'want to know more' when it comes to looking up at the stars. I snatched up this book when given a chance.
It has images of the constellat...

But I wasn’t expecting it to teach me as much as it...

I’ve been interested in astronomy since I was a kid, and this book is filled with many interesting facts that were new to me. The illustrations are also really beautiful.

What We See in the Stars is a nice little table book filled with incredible art and tons of info about our solar system, the stars beyond and our curiosity.
I initially requested this because I am a bit of a space geek. I never get tired of learning about the universe, and even when it’s...

What We See in the Stars took me by surprise. Because I had not seen this book in person before its arrival on my doorstep, I really didn’t know what to expect. Let me tell you this… What We See in the Stars is a gorgeous book. The cover is richly illustrated with beautifully drawn constellations...

Oseid’s work is comprehensive in scope, but simple in format. In her introduction to the constellations, she provides a general overview of constellations and their relation to humans throughout history. For instance, most of the constellations’ names are mythologically based because Ptolemy (the...
