9780792255819: Jump Into Science: Stars

Where do stars go in the daytime? How far away are stars? What stories can they tell us?

Marvel at the mythic stories of the constellations and try finding your own patterns in the sky. Think beyond our sun and wonder what other planets might be circling other stars and what, or who, might be on them. Open the book and blast off to the stars!

"A sure winner for future astronomers and their stargazing parents. Tomecek and newcomer Yoshikawa make an excellent duo in rendering concepts understandable to readers." —Kirkus Reviews

About the Author:

Steve Tomecek, the Executive Director and founder of Science Plus, Inc., is the author of numerous books, including three other Jump Into Science titles. He was the winner of the 1996 American Institute of Physics Excellence in Science Writing Award. He lives in Bellerose, New York.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-This colorful book offers a solid introduction to its subject. Basic concepts are carefully explained-where stars go during the day, why they seem to rise and set, what one actually looks like, relative heat, distance from the Earth both in light years and miles, etc. An experiment that illustrates the relationship between a star's distance and brightness is included at the end. Done in acrylics and mixed media, Yoshikawa's clear, vivid artwork backs up and extends the text. The clearly labeled diagrams are helpful. This appealing book will help backyard astronomers understand the night sky. Use this title as part of a science unit and pair it with Joanna Cole's The Magic School Bus Lost in the Solar System (Scholastic, 1990) and Seymour Simon's Stars (Morrow, 1986) for a thorough overview of the topic. One small proofreading cavil: on the last page, there is a picture of a mirror that contains a misprint. Irritating, given that it is followed by the injunction to "Think."-Dona Ratterree, New York City Public Schools
