Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

What's Your Sign? A Cosmic Guide for Young Astrologers by Madalyn Aslan, illus. by Jennifer Kalis, provides the pertinent details on each astrological sign, explaining the history ("Libra was Themis, goddess of Justice"), lucky color, day of the week, etc. ("Opal... is lucky only for Libras") and personality associated with each (including the ideal sign for your "crush"). The sturdy, spiral-bound edition contains a pull-out poster and a zodiac spin wheel for fast fact-finding. Ages 8-up.

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-9-An old topic is entertainingly presented in a sturdy, spiral-bound package. Index tabs labeled with the 12 zodiac signs begin with Aries and end with Pisces. The 10 pages devoted to each sign describe the dates covered; features of that time of year; and the personality and social traits of the people born under that sign. Brief sections tell of the mythical characters represented by the astrological signs and their ruling planets. Each chapter concludes with a selection of famous people born under the sign and fictional and cartoon characters who exhibit its personality traits. A page sports a zodiac wheel with a window that can be turned to reveal each sign's color(s), day of the week, metal, precious stone, and element. Use of words such as "dissed" and "rent" give the text a more contemporary air than most treatments of the subject. Numerous funky cartoon illustrations and purple font add to the book's attractiveness.

"What's Your Sign?" is a true gift to young readers. I'm a fifth grade teacher and child care provider in the MD/DC area. I work with many types of children and each one of them would be able to benefit from this book in a different way. The book may be used as a tool to help a child find their place in the world. It allows a young person to learn to accept themselves and those around them. The book celebrates differences by exploring people's astrological signs, to explain each persons' gifts to the world. The book has a wonderful introduction. It explains how the book can be used and the benefit of keeping a journal of others- to act as a super sleuth. The pictures are delightful and add to the charm of the book. I especially liked the sections which talk about your pets signs, what to do if your best friends a certain sign and how to react to your teacher if he/she is a certain sign. I keep the book on my coffee table. (even though I'm an adult) Because everyone enjoys picking it up and seeing a little window into the world of others. I highly recommend this book to ALL children. It would be a wonderful gift for an eccentric little one. Enjoy!!!

Format: Hardcover
Finally, an astrology book for kids. It's about time! And Aslan's book treats the subject with the respect it deserves. It's accessible to young readers without beng watered down or oversimplified, and it allows (or better yet, inspires) young astrologers to tune into the cosmos and simultaneously reflect on the self. The information is solid and intriguing, and there's just the right "light" touches to keep every kid fascinated. Astrology provides an excellent framework from which to experience this confusing world, and Aslan's book helps prepare kids to think deeply about relationships, examine issues (and relationships) from different perspectives, and figure complex things out by seeing where they fit into the big picture. Is there anything more important than that? This is a great read for children of all ages!

I cannot tell you how GOOD this book is!!! I am not a child, I suppose I am a young - or, rather, amateur astrologer - but whoever you are, reading it MAKES YOU HAPPY. Unlike other astrology books, THERE IS NO NEGATIVE - only your positive traits are talked about and when there might be a problem (Scorpio relating to Leo for example) SOLUTIONS ARE GIVEN. I love the sibling parts (my brother is as BOSSY A LEO AS THEY COME) - and the wheel is pretty good, and the illustrations are imagainative and cute. I have put the poster on the door to my room and before anyone can enter they have to say WHAT IS THEIR SIGN.
MINE IS THE MOST PSYCHIC!!!! (clue, clue)!!!

What's Your Sign is such a fantastic boost to my family's new year! We got it at Christmas and the kids are still on it!!
The illustrations are really cute and funny and the writing speaks to children in a wonderful way.
MY favourite: the author addresses how to get on with other signs that are usually incompatible and describes the signs' gifts for increasing their communication skills.
We need all the tolerance and understanding we can get in this new year - and I never expected it to be found in an astrology book for young ones. What's Your Sign is a joy to look at and read and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

The author has said that her interest in astrology began when she was seven years old because it gave her access to a secret door inside herself, and helped her to understand those action places in herself that she had known all along but could never find the words for. Her aim when writing this book was to help other children to do the same, to build their confidence through teaching them to see what is special and unique in them, and to give them a better understanding of themselves and those around them. All the information is presented clearly and in an amusing way.
Madalyn goes through the astrological signs with a summing up of their qualities, and insights as to how that sign might behave or feel in different areas of their life, and what they might expect from others of that sign around them. Sections include, "Which signs you groove with: which signs you don't', 'With your family', and 'your teachers', 'In the playground', 'With your friends', ''in school', and 'How to spot...' She also lists celebrities born under each sign, describes the nature of the ruling planet, draws on Greek and Roman myths to show temperament and tendencies and has included in each chapter a quote from a child of that particular sign with their views on life or themselves. There is a spinner wheel on the back page which gives the elements for each sign and the book is indexed with tabs so that it is easy to find any particular chapter. I cannot remember the last time I saw a book so beautifully illustrated, and as I read it I found myself making a list of friends' children who might like it for a present.

I am a 15 year old libra, and i was interviewed by Madalyn Aslan the author. I just recently acquired a copy of the book and was able to read it. I found it very insightful and an interesting read for any age. If you have any questions about how you work or anyone close to you this is the book for you. It looks at astrology in a new way and takes it apart for younger people to understand. I highly recommend it, especially if you are interested in astrology.
