When you look up at the night sky, have you ever wondered how to tell the difference between a planet and a star? Are you curious about where the name for each planet came from? With its bestselling mix of science and mythology, Dot to Dot in the Sky: Stories of the Planets provides the answers. Children can learn the Greek myths about each planet's namesake, along with astronomy facts and tips for observing the planets.

Children can trace a path through the solar system to find the planets as they move against the backdrop of stars. They can learn how to identify the planets with simple equipment. They might see the rings of Saturn or one of Jupiter's moons!

Dot to Dot in the Sky: Stories of the Planets is an interesting and accessible astronomy guide for children and parents. Stay up late and enjoy observing the planets on clear summer nights, or snuggle up together at bedtime to read any one of the fascinating myths associated with each planet.
