On a clear night ...

...you can see forever. This seems especially true on a crisp, cold winter's eve. Wrap yourself in warm clothing and head outside on the next clear night to star gaze. We have lots of books to help identify and explain what you see. The classic book Find the Constellations by H.A. Rey (of Curious George fame) is a wonderful place to start. Night Science for Kids by Terry Krautwurst will help you and your children explore the world after dark. We also have an array of star and planet books by master nonfiction writer Seymour Simon. Other books on the subject are:
Stars by Steve Tomecke
Moon by Steve Tomecek
The Big Dipper and You by E.C. Krupp
The Sky is Full of Stars by Franklyn Mansfield Branley
Where's the Big Dipper? by Sidney Rosen
Have fun enjoying the evening and don't forget the hot chocolate!
