Night Sky Detective (Smithsonian Eyewitness Explorer)

Reviewed by:

In this newly revised edition (2015) of Night Sky Detective, we have all the excellent non-fiction text features that we have come to expect from DK (Dorling Kindersley), and the features we know will hold the attention of our inquiring Division 2 students.  This text will be especially useful as support for the Grade 6 Sky Science unit.

Table of Contents, Index, and Glossary help students in their search for particular information.  Bold headings, clearly captioned photographs and diagrams on every page capture all readers; straight-forward readable text, that is not overwhelming, will appeal to capable readers in Grades 4-6. Throughout the book are many easy activities to explain celestial and lunar phenomenon.  Lists of required materials, plus step-by-step methodology with clear directions and diagrams, help students explore on their own (e.g. watching an eclipse safely, looking for sunspots, observing moon phases, making a lunar calendar, making Marian soil).  A good time to replace your library’s original edition, with this updated revision.
