Good evening, amazing pulsar! When other stars die, they shrink. Then they spin and flash like a lighthouse.

Good Night Galaxy by Adam Gamble and Mark Jasper
Good Night Galaxy is a children’s book written in the style of the children’s classic Good Night Moon. It starts by greeting the planet Earth at sunrise, and then moves steadily outward as the day progresses, ending with “Good night galaxies.”
The premise alone attracted me to the book, but was pleased to see that the book was filled with high-quality artwork, and contained a good deal of accurate but age-appropriate science. I think this is a great intro to astronomy for the newest generation of science lovers.
In all, I would rate this book a 9 out of 10. The art is beautiful and the science is accurate, making this book a great age for 0-4 years.
So, in related news, we have a new little addition to our house! Ryan Alexander was born on 12/29/16. So my reading material has changed a bit – thought I’d take a moment to recommend Xander’s favorite board book to you all, now that I’ve gotten a nap in for the day.
Thank you all for being patient with me during my break away from writing. I will have a regular review up next week. In the meantime, happy reading!
