Astronomy for Young and Old is a perfect introduction to astronomy for any child, even if they do not have a telescope. It explains the visible constellations and explores the Sun, Moon, planets, comets, and meteorites. Color illustrations and diagrams at every stage help children relate what they are reading to what they can see in the sky.


Suitable for budding astronomers in both the northern and southern hemispheres, whether in polar, temperate, or tropical latitudes—that is, everywhere! This is an ideal introduction the wonders of stargazing.
