In high school, I was an excellent student in every subject that had to do with Languages, Literature, History and so on and so forth. Maths was the very bane of my existence, Physics and Chemistry were very effective sleeping methods and once or twice, I ‘’fell asleep’’ while I was awake, overlo...

We took a family trip to a planetarium last year. The boy child swears that I liked it the most of anyone in the family. (I totally did) But it did give us the 'want to know more' when it comes to looking up at the stars. I snatched up this book when given a chance. It has images of the constellat...

Do you remember looking up at the stars as a kid, being told that is Orion's Belt, Casiopea's Chair or that is the Big Dipper, and all you could see were stars, not the picture the names suggested. And when you looked at reference books, they weren't much better help. This book is for the kid in u...

My word, this book is, first and foremost, STUNNING. The artwork is by far the loveliest I have ever seen in a nonfiction title. Even if you aren't interested in the stars and learning about constellations, I cannot recommend this book enough as a "coffee table" book - one of those that you pick...

What We See in the Stars is a fun and educational book about space. I knew before opening this book by Kelsey Oseid that it would be a book full of gorgeous, mainly blue-and-grey watercolor-like illustrations of the sky and all that it contains. But I wasn’t expecting it to teach me as much as it...

4.5 Stars What We See in the Stars is a nice little table book filled with incredible art and tons of info about our solar system, the stars beyond and our curiosity. I initially requested this because I am a bit of a space geek. I never get tired of learning about the universe, and even when it’s...

What We See in the Stars took me by surprise. Because I had not seen this book in person before its arrival on my doorstep, I really didn’t know what to expect. Let me tell you this… What We See in the Stars is a gorgeous book. The cover is richly illustrated with beautifully drawn constellations...

Oseid’s work is comprehensive in scope, but simple in format. In her introduction to the constellations, she provides a general overview of constellations and their relation to humans throughout history. For instance, most of the constellations’ names are mythologically based because Ptolemy (the...
