When the Stars Come Out by Nicola Edwards - OPTIONAL

When the Stars Come Out by Nicola Edwards, illustrated by Lucy Cartwright.  70 pages.  NON-FICTION/PICTURE BOOK  360 Degrees (Tiger Tales), 2019.  $30.  9781944560235  



This book highlights different interesting aspects about the night time. There is a history of astronomy and an explanation of what makes up the night sky.  There are interesting facts about what the sky looks like from different hemispheres and what animals do in different regions. There is also facts about humans' sleep cycle and their night life, as well as holidays that are celebrated at night.  There are many random facts found throughout this book.  

My favorite part of this book is the illustrations.  They are appealing and supplement the facts.  The facts are interesting, even though they are random and don’t seem to be in much of an order.  This book is more a fun fact type book.  My biggest complaint is that most of the text is super tiny (making it hard to read) and the book is oversized.  

Reviewer, C. Peterson
