"Starry Skies" by Samantha Chagollan and Nila Aye (Walter Foster Jr Publishing)

We love space, and we really love stargazing, whether it's through our telescope or with the naked eye...
On the rare occasions the sky is clear enough for it, we really need a book like "Starry Skies" by Samantha Chagollan and Nila Aye to offer up a lovely story-like book based around the constellations in the night sky.

We never have any problems finding The Big Dipper / The Plough or even Orion, but others like Ursa Major and Ursa Minor are slightly more tricky.

"Starry Skies" is squarely aimed at young stargazers but it's also brilliant for older kids who just want something easy to flick through, allowing them to find the shapes of the stars, their ancient symbols and have loads of fun while doing so.

Such a great little book, beautifully presented in starry night-time colours making it really stand out.

"Starry Skies" by Samantha Chagollan and Nila Aye is out now, published by Walter Foster Jr (kindly supplied for review).
