The Stars: A New Way to See Them
by H.E. Rey

      Most star books depict the constellations as either elaborate allegorical figures bearing little relationship to the stars, or as geometrical hieroglyphs without meaningful shapes. But now you can learn the constellations as simple, easy-to-recognize stick figures, thanks to H.A. Rey's classic book, The Stars. I studied out of this book more than a decade ago, but today the constellations are still immediately recognizeable to me. It is like seeing old friends in the sky every time I walk outside at night, and they always help to guide me on my night-time expeditions.

      The Stars includes user-friendly models illustrating the phases of the moon and the changing seasons, plus fascinating trivia about stars, the solar system, and the galaxy. This book is great for adults and easily used with kids. Almost fifty years after it was first published, The Stars is still the best book on the subject. 160 pages.
