Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

For every child who has ever looked up at the stars and asked, What are they? comes the story of a curious boy who never stopped wondering: Carl Sagan.

When Carl Sagan was a young boy he went to the 1939 World's Fair and his life was changed forever. From that day on he never stopped marveling at the universe and seeking to understand it better. Star Stuff follows Carl from his days star gazing from the bedroom window of his Brooklyn apartment, through his love of speculative science fiction novels, to his work as an internationally renowned scientist who worked on the Voyager missions exploring the farthest reaches of space. This book introduces the beloved man who brought the mystery of the cosmos into homes across America to a new generation of dreamers and star gazers.

   Perfect book for inspiring children
The world is beautiful and full of curiosities, and my son is interested in all things science. The story of a boy who fed his curiosity enough that he was able to do it as a grown up inspired me to give him Star Stuff. To ask questions and find answers is a wonderful job. He really likes it. It's a simple story. It does a great job of inspiring awe in a child. The child's wheels are turning as they look at pictures and think about their own thoughts.
This book is beautiful. The illustrations are gorgeous. The story is very sweet. It starts out with Carl's fascination with the universe at a young age, and goes on to show how he learns more about it and contributes to science. For my boyfriend's birthday, I got this for him because Carl Sagan is his hero. He loved it and we are very happy with it.
   Carl is just as accessible to my daughter as he was to me
Raising children with scientific literacy and an understanding of how the natural world works is very important. A necessity for everyone else and a joy for any secular parent.
   Great book for the pensive child or the adult looking to share the Mysteries of the Cosmos with the next generation
My children enjoyed the interactive parts of the book when they read it with me. If you have children who are passionate about stars or just a child who spends a lot of time wondering, then this is for you. A brief glimpse into the life of Carl Sagan.
   It’s love
Looking for all the stars. My children enjoy this story and the wonders it has to offer. The audio disk should have been included! It is!
   Must have for space lovers
My little loves this book. We read it many times. His mind is racing with questions because he loves space right now. It is a must have for any child interested in space and science.
   Love this book
This book is wonderful! It was given to our 4 and 5 year olds for the holiday last year and they still love it. Anyone who is a fan of the author should get this book. It's never too late to be curious and wonder.
   Gorgeous illustrations, so-so writing/storytelling
I got my son a book for Christmas. He likes it, but it has a lot of explanation and elaboration from us when we read it to him. The illustrations are amazing and make up for the rest of the book which is rather lacking. It is hard to follow the storyline. The storyline is choppy and leaves out connections between parts of the story, which is what I assume is a simple fashion for kids. It implies that the major contributions to science education and to the Voyager projects were not explained. I need to stop and fill in the gaps when I read it. We like the pictures in the book, but I wish I had picked another one. My son does enjoy it, but I think it could have been a better book if it was written better.
   An Average Book about an Incredible Topic
The illustrations were amazing. The authorillustrator is a great artist. I found the writing to be average. I wanted to turn the page to learn more. I didn't get excited about the topicstory about an extraordinary scientist. Kids might stop reading if they feel the same way.
