A noteworthy review of Constellations from School Library Journal on November 1, 2013
These volumes provide both astronomy and mythology lessons in one very attractive package and are sure to be popular with young stargazers. Each of the books discusses a major constellation’s origin and mythology story, compares its presence in other cultures around the world, and explains how to locate it in the night sky. Sidebars provide additional facts (e.g., ‘The largest star that astronomers know of is VY Can Majoris’). Using crisp images and a pleasing combination of accent and colors, this set is sure to attract student researchers as well as educators and parents looking for engaging read-aloud nonfiction. This series gets a gold star.
