This fun, beautifully illustrated book teaches young readers about the twelve constellations and the stars that form them. Packed with astronomical facts, Zodiac guides children through the stars and explains the celestial phenomena that form the basis for study of astronomy. Every constellation is accompanied by an interesting tale, including a story about the scorpion Scorpius, the great hunter Orion, and the vindictive goddess Artemis. The author provides endnotes on the Earth's orbit, the origin of the zodiac, astronomical constellations versus astrological signs, and zodiac visibility. Striking artwork superimposed with shimmering metallic stars dazzle readers and complements the engaging text.
