A New Science Resource

I am going to use Apologia’s elementary astronomy text for my younger girls this year.  So I was excited to have the opportunity to review The Stargazer’s Guide to the Night Sky by Jason Lisle.

The appearance of this resource was the first thing to catch my eye.  This is a beautiful book.  Text is liberally sprinkled with photos and illustrations making this a great book to just look through.

The other thing that impressed me was the versatility of this book for all ages.  My younger kids will benefit from looking at all the great illustrations of some of the things we read about in our astronomy course.  But upper level high school students could just as easily use this as a primary science text.  The information is deep enough.

As with our upper level Apologia science books, that we really enjoy, I noticed that the text is very conversational but also very technical in places.  The hobby astronomer could pick up this book and learn more about stargazing as a hobby.  And the high school science student could pick it up and study astronomy in more depth.

I’m very impressed with this one and look forward to bringing it our to supplement our science this year.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher for review purposes.  All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
