“ "Our Stars" by Anne Rockwell is another wonderful non fiction book from this author illustrator. The book shares the most basic facts about stars with the reader as well as more complicated facts about constellations, comets and meteors. I love that the facts are shared pretty independently on each page, so if something is above your toddlers head you can simply skip that page, until they are. The illustrations are fun enough to grab attention but detailed enough to help explain the facts being presented. ”
