Astronomy for the elementary school set! This is a great little story, set in a village in Eritrea, where the village storyteller shows the children the night sky, picks out Polaris, and tells them the Roman myth about Callisto and Arcas, who became Ursa Major and Ursa Minor. Many of the illustrations are animated, and at the end of the story is a star chart showing many constellations that surround “The Bear and the Baby.” This is a simple, but instructive, introduction to constellations that will interest your students.
