Image of item
Book
A guide to the zodiac constellations and their celestial legends. Everyone knows their own star sign but how many can identify the constellations in the night sky and the stars that form them? This book offers a factual astronomical guide to the zodiac and the celestial phenomena and ancient myths in which the zodiac tradition is rooted. This fun, beautifully illustrated book teaches young readers about the twelve constellations and the stars that form them. Packed with astronomical facts, Zodiac guides children through the stars and explains the celestial phenomena that form the basis for study of astronomy. Every constellation is accompanied by an interesting tale, including a story about the scorpion Scorpius, the great hunter Orion, and the vindictive goddess Artemis. The author provides endnotes on the Earth's orbit, the origin of the zodiac, astronomical constellations versus astrological signs, and zodiac visibility. Striking artwork superimposed with shimmering metallic stars dazzle readers and complements the engaging text.
