Poetic Book on Stars

Not my thing. This poetic and sometimes rhyming book throws out lots of Star terms but doesn’t really teach. Pictures are beautiful and go with some of the poetry, but overall it’s a book that leaves me flat... and confused.

Bright Star, Night Star

Disappointing. The description should be poetry using stars as the theme. This was not a book about astronomy.
