How can you distinguish between planets and stars in the night sky? Is that bright, sparkling object a star or is Venus winking? Is that red object really Mars? This new book from the author of "Dot to Dot in the Sky: Stories of the Stars" is a unique astronomy resource designed for parents and children to use together. Each colorful chapter focuses on a specific planet (even Earth) and shares the myths that have come to be associated with it. Each chapter also features Planetary Notes, tips for observing the planet in the sky, and informative sidebars with planetary facts and dates in the history of planet gazing and discovery.
Joan Marie Galat was born in Washington, D.C. and lived in Virginia, Alaska and Maryland before her family settled in Edmonton, Alberta, when she was eight. She was inspired to write her first book, Dot to Dot in the Sky: Stories in the Stars, when she wasn't able to find a book for her children that combined storytelling and astronomy. Joan has a diploma in Biological Sciences and Ecology from the Northern Alberta Institute. She lives near Edmonton with her three children.
