Is this book about a real woman in STEAM?

A full-color nonfiction picture book for ages 5 to 8 about those billions of stars you see when you look up into the nighttime sky!

The Universe is full of billions of twinkling stars that humans have told stories about, navigated by, and make wishes upon for centuries. But what is a star made of? How long will its light last? In The Stars: A Gazillion Suns, the character of the Universe takes us on a journey among the stars and explains how they are born, what makes them twinkle, how many there are, and even how they will come to an end. The Universe’s conversational and engaging tone helps to engage and inform, bringing complex scientific concepts to a level kids can grasp. The two alien characters provide hilarious commentary while a poem at the beginning encourages language arts connections!

Through a hands-on activity, fun facts, and a glossary, kids are invited to explore a world previously out of reach! Perfect as a read aloud or for beginner readers.

The Stars: A Gazillion Suns is part of a set of four books in the Picture Book Science series that explore our incredible solar system. Other titles in this series include The Sun: Shining Star of the Solar System; The Earth: One-of-a-Kind Planet; and The Moon: Small but Mighty Neighbor.
