Seeing Stars [With 10 Constellation CardsWith Flashlight]

Charles Hobson, Author Chronicle Books $14.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-8118-3205-2
Designed for the astronomically inclined, Charles Hobson's Seeing Stars is one stellar tool kit. Inside, 10 die-cut cards feature depictions of the constellations as diagrammed by Greek astronomers. Turned over, they reveal the constellations as seen from Earth. Youngsters can create starlight in a darkened room by beaming the matchbox-thin flashlight (included) at the card. A handbook retells the Andromeda myth and tells how to locate the Great Bear, the Little Bear and Orion's Belt in the night sky. (Chronicle, $14.95 ages 8-up ISBN 0-8118-3205-8; Oct.)
