    2. The twin text I chose for this book is Sky Color by Peter H. Reynolds. I chose this as the twin text because it talks about seeing the world in a new way, and when the children read Night Sky, they will start to see the world in a new way. I think that after reading and look through Night Sky, the students will start to look at things differently because they have learned something new, and this twin text will remind the students that sometimes we do have to see things in a new and exciting way.

    3. Beautifully stunning pictures and interesting facts about our solar system make this a great visual aid when teaching or learning about the night sky. I really enjoyed the way the book broke down what would be visible (and to what level of clarity) with the naked eye, binoculars, or a telescope). Information wise it was a bit too much for me, having very little foreknowledge on the topic. This book would be better suited after covering a section or two on astronomy.

    4. I think this book was totally amazing! I can say this book was fun, even though the funniness of this book is quite different than other novel books. It was fun to pick up new knowledge, and I really enjoyed this book. Anyone who seeks for stars, planets, and solar system kind of knowledge definitely should read this book

    5. This is a beautiful book about the solar system and the night sky. It includes great photos and pictures of stars, planets, and constellations. There is information about tools to look at the stars, different constellations, planets, the moon and galaxies. It includes a table of contents, glossary and index.

    6. a stunning book, full of information and illustrations about the night sky and the other planets and parts of the solar system. each page is a treasure trove of information.
