Non-Fiction - Age 7 up

UK Writer (Images from various sources)
Raman Prinja   Night Sky Watcher
QED Publishing 2014  $19.99pb 120pp
ISBN 978 1 7817 1657 1
Themes: Exploring the universe/ Stars and planets

This is a great guide to exploring the night sky with useful hints on how to make the most of an evening’s stargazing.  There is probably not much more any writer can say about the night sky until something new is discovered but this is a comprehensive cover of the known facts and the book is encased in thick plastic with a zip in case the user wants to take it out on a frosty night!  Colour and many fact boxes and images will make this appealing to not-so-keen readers.
Raman K. Prinja is professor of astrophysics at University College London

Year 3 up/ Age 7 up
