Glow in the Dark Constellations by C.E. Thompson

Book Review

Glow-In-The-Dark Constellations: A Field Guide for Young Stargazers by C.E. Thompson (Grosset & Dunlop, 1999).

     Glow-In-The-Dark Constellations is an engaging introduction to finding star constellations. The star diagrams in the back of the book glow in the dark if exposed to light beforehand, in case you want to take the book outside for stargazing.

Each page has three features:

The Story: Retells the myth behind the constellation
The Constellation: Discusses the stars that make up the constellation and provides tips for remembering the constellation's shape
How to Find It: Provides tips for finding the constellation in the sky.

     The star diagrams are accurate for latitudes that encompass the continental U.S. If you happen to live there or at the same latitudes, this book is a nice introduction to stargazing.
