Every night many twinkling stars appear in the wide sky. From the earth below, we can see the glowing moon, and sometimes even a bright meteor shooting through space. With gentle text and luminous watercolors, Anne Rockwell brings the distant heavens a little closer.

About the Author:

ANNE ROCKWELL is the author of hundreds of books for children, including the distinguished picture book biography Only Passing Through: The Story of Sojourner Truth, an ALA Notable Children's Book. She lives in Greenwich, Connecticut. Visit her website at www.annerockwell.com. 

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-Rockwell begins and ends with stars, but in between attempts to inform children about planets, meteors, comets, and moons. Given that there are only 22 pages of text, with 3 short sentences per page at most, it's an impossible task. The author's trademark artwork in bright colors is eye-catching but really doesn't amplify the all-too-brief narrative. Beneath a painting depicting the constellation Orion readers are told, "When we see Orion the Hunter in the sky, we know it is the season to harvest what we planted." Given that Orion is visible from October to March, that's a long harvest season. Rockwell states, "Streaks of light that look like faraway fireworks are meteors. We call them shooting stars." Fine, but what are they really, and what are children to make of the statement that, "Some stars are so far away that their fire has burned out by the time the brightness reaches us?" In an effort to provide an introduction to the young, Rockwell has simplified too much. Gail Gibbons's Stargazers (Holiday, 1992) is a better choice for this age group.
