The first of the educational and artistically illustrated series ‘Shelby’s Astronomical Adventures,’ this book, ‘Shelby And The Night Sky,’ takes a look up. The reader will find themselves immersed in the cosmos in this tale about the night sky and the astronomical science of what’s happening above.
Shelby is 9 years old and loves visiting her Grandparent’s in the country. On this particular visit, in mid-August, just before starting 4th grade in the big city where she lives, Shelby notices how fantastically the night sky can be seen from the peaceful countryside.
One night, Grandma and Shelby sneak out to sky gaze and sleep under the blanket of stars above. Granny surprises Shelby Girl with her deep love of the night sky, and all of her cosmic wit. The special bond between this Grandma and her grand daughter makes this educational adventure a treasure for the heart and mind.
