Book Description

Oct. 4 2007

Explore the ancient wisdom of the night sky.

Stories of the Zodiac is the fourth book in the best-selling Dot to Dot in the Sky series, blending sky science with ancient myths. The adventures of gods, animals and heroes are illustrated in the 12 zodiac constellations. Each constellation presents a Greek myth to discover and myriad celestial objects to explore, including nebulae, multiple star systems and meteor showers.

Discover how the constellations have been used to create horoscopes that describe personalities and predict the future. Find out the difference between astrology and astronomy. Use the glow-in-the-dark map of the night sky to identify the constellations and search easily for them. Learn the stories that originated long ago, when people first gazed at the same star patterns we see today.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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 Amazon.com
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|Verified Purchase
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!
