A glow-in-the-dark star map rounds out this exciting blend of science and fantasy Feb. 6 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Paperback
Dot to Dot in the Sky: Stories of the Zodiac is a softcover book that teaches young readers about mythology, astrology, and astronomy. Chapters offer fun facts about stars in the heavens, and instructions for locating constellations in the night sky; yet the heart and soul of Dot to Dot in the Sky are its renditions of ancient Greek mythology behind each of the twelve Zodiac constellations. From Astraea, the goddess of justice who fled to the heavens with the balance Libra because humankind had become too violent and dishonest, to Leo, the Nemean lion that Hercules killed as one of his twelve labors, the tales of myth are brought to life with vivid color illustrations. A glow-in-the-dark star map rounds out this exciting blend of science and fantasy, enthusiastically recommended for young stargazers.

Format: Paperback
I bought the entire Dot to Dot sky series of books. Great introduction to the solar system, planets, constellations and the associated myths. The myths are told in a brief consise format and are quite interesting. Artistic illistrations and top quality printing. These are short books so they are good for kids. Makes a lovely gift.

Even 5th graders know about zodiac signs, so this book satisfied their curiosity and confirmed what sign each student is. Though we were dealing with scientific concepts, this book made the perfect connection to mythological reasons for the stars' positions. Short stories accompanying each sign and excellent drawings helped explain what some see in the stars. Receipt of the book was speedy, and the condition of the used copy was very good. Keeper for my classroom library!

This book it great. I love the map at the beginning that shows the placement of all the stars. The map is glow in the dark so that is pretty cool. Also the stories are easy to read and understand.
