What Sky & Telescope's Monica Young, has to say:
"I read this book frequently with my 3-year-old son, and he loves it. Even if he doesn't fully grasp its message, he understands far more than I sometimes give him credit for. And since familiarity breeds contentment (at least in toddlers), this book has served as a "gateway book" to other children's books about stargazing."
