Bright Star, Night Star: An Astronomy Story

Bright Star, Night Star: An Astronomy Story

Feb. 16, 2014, MIDVALE, UT, USA – Want to expose kids to the night sky? A new picture book Bright Star, Night Star: An Astronomy Story sneaks a little space science into bedtime.

A story about the starry skies, this children's book has activities for finding stars, constellations, planets and other heavenly bodies. Rich illustrations by Spanish artist Luis F. Sanz help identify new objects and words for children ages 4 - 10.

Author Karl Beckstrand hopes the story and activities spark children's interest in all things stellar. This is Beckstrand's tenth book. He likes to weave language, counting, or other learning concepts throughout his stories. He even wrote a free geography ebook for kids: It Ain't Flat: A Memorizable Book of Countries.

True to its multicultural tradition, Premio Publishing & Gozo Books features characters of color in its new astronomy book. Premio's activity and language books, ebooks and app are nationally-lauded and filled with surprises.

The paperback book and ebook can be found via PremioBooks.com, Baker & Taylor, Brodart, EBSCO, Follett Library Resources/Title Wave, Ingram, Mackin, Bn.com/NOOK, Amazon.com/Kindle, iTunes, and select booksellers. Customers may pre-order hard cover from the publisher.

Premio Publishing & Gozo Books has been delighting families and educators since 2004. Premio's multicultural non-fiction stories, ebooks, app, and activity books (including Spanish and bilingual books with pronunciation guide, finding/counting mysteries, and kid’s cookbook) have diverse characters in funny, engaging vivid color. Nationally-lauded (ForeWord Reviews, Horn Book blog, School Library Journal, Kirkus) our educational stories capture attention and create repeat readers. They are not about ethnic or racial diversity; they simply feature Hispanic, black, Asian, white and mixed-race children and address fear, courage, sharing and giving. Find our children’s books/ebooks/app via: Baker & Taylor, Barnes & Noble/Nook, Brodart, Amazon/Kindle, EBSCO, Follett Library Resources/BWI Title Wave, Ingram, iTunes, Kobo, Android and Premiobooks.com (free online books). It’s a gift of laughter, learning & family fun for ages 2 and up (because bedtime should never put parents to sleep)! She Doesn't Want the Worms - Ella no quiere los gusanos was named in the top 10 "Best Books" of 2011 – ForeWord Reviews Magazine and featured in School Library Journal. Crumbs on the Stairs - Migas en las escaleras: A Mystery consistently ranks in Amazon's top 10 bestselling books for ESL, large print, and also Spanish children’s titles. Bad Bananas: A Story Cookbook for Kids was praised in Horn Book's blog review. Bilingual app Sounds in the House was highlighted by Kirkus Reviews.
