    1. Uma Krishnaswami Aimée Sicuro Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Bright Sky, Starry City book, this is one of the most wanted Uma Krishnaswami Aimée Sicuro author readers around the world.

    2. So often I read a book that makes me think of a certain student and what they like to read This one brings to mind a grade 2 student that loves, loves, loves any book about the planets and solar system While it is a nonfiction book, I know this student will like the nonfiction facts in the back, particularly the part about light pollution The story about a girl that s disappointment is turned into a blizzard of happiness when she is able to see the stars at night is memorable with its beautiful [...]

    3. Personal Note A definite addition to the space kit.Uma Krishnaswami teaches at Vermont College of Fine Arts in the MFA program in Writing for Children and Young Adults and is an active blogger.Aime Sicuro is an award winning illustrator who has also worked as a line designer and gallery artist This is her first picture book.

    4. Phoebe s dream to see the stars and planets from her home in the city finally comes true when the power goes off I, too, yearn to be free of light pollution from the city lights when I can t get out to the countryside to stargaze.

    5. Father and daughter share a love of viewing the night sky especially when there s a power outage and they can see so much picture book Mentions that Phoebe, the daughter, was named after one of Saturn s moons Includes space facts in back.

    6. This is a cute book about science I loved science as a kid, so this would have been the perfect picture book for me I hate to call this a picture book because it is so much than that This book brings a love of science, to children of all ages It follows this little girl named Phoebe who has a serious love of science, specifically space She knows the names of all the planets and many stars She asks so many questions of her dad, who I believe owns a telescope shop of some sort, but I could be wr [...]

    7. I am so in love with this book Phoebe draws stars and planets in sidewalk chalk and wishes she could see them in the sky, but the city lights make it difficult A rainstorm washing away her chalk drawings is a blessing in disguise when it causes a power outage Phoebe, her dad, and their city neighbors gather on the sidewalk to gaze at the stars, planets, and even the Milky Way in this magical moment of city darkness.

    8. I love BRIGHT SKY, STARRY CITY by Uma Krishnaswami, illustrated by Aim e Sicuro Sicuro s gorgeously textured illustrations perfectly accompany Krishnaswami s soaring love song to the night sky Get this one for girls interested in science or for any kid who gazes wide eyed at the stars Ages 6 up.

    9. Students study the planets and constellations, but how often do they get a chance of seeing what is really out there in space Hard to study them during the daytime hours of school Fun book to show how a father and daughter stay up to see a special nighttime viewing of some planets Great back matter at the end.

    10. Such a cool picture book about the city sky I have to agree with Phoebe and her father that country skies are better than city skies where the lights take away from the beauty of the night sky.Author Uma Krishnaswami and illustrator Aim e Sicuro bring you BRIGHT SKY, STARRY CITY to get you wondering about the stars.Published by Groundwood Books planets nightsky stars

    11. Phoebe longs to see the planets from her city home A chance power outage after a big storm lets her do just that I like the circle outline for the illustrations Confused by the Dad s store though are there stores that just sell telescopes Lots of helpful back matter though written for a older age group than the narrative would Suitable for Kindergarten unit on the stars, planets, etc.

    12. This book includes several concepts that are presented well to young children light pollution, seeing the stars from a city, planets can be seen in the sky The story would mean even to children who live in cities where they ve never been able to see something like the Milky Way.

    13. Planets and outer space, light pollution and power outages Compare Contrast with that picture book about electricity going out in a stormwhat s the title BLACKOUT via Kate Hastingsank you

    14. I liked the story and that it provided information about the solar system My little one is ready to go out and make her own chalk drawings on the sidewalk She loves learning about space and other science topics but is not yet a reader so this picture book was perfect
