“50 Things to See with a Telescope – Kids is an excellent first book or addition to any kid amateur astronomer’s bookshelf – even for those of us who are still just kids at heart.” –Kevin Mogk, Science Communicator, Manitoba Museum Planetarium.
“This book is a must have BEFORE buying that first telescope for a young new astronomer (or even an older beginner)! Or, at the least, given to a beginner with a new telescope. As an advanced amateur astronomer, I have been on the lookout for a book I could wholeheartedly recommend to beginners, and I haven’t seen a book better than The Stars, A New Way to See Them by H. A. Ray, until now.” – Eric Newell, Carolina Skygazers.

Even without a telescope, this introduction to the night sky is essential for every child’s collection.A new version of this book called “50 Things to See with a Telescope – A Young Stargazers Guide” will also be available September, 2018.
