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.

MINE IS THE MOST PSYCHIC!!!! (clue, clue)!!!
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.
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.
