My First Pocket Guide Stars & Planets Sep 27, 2009
I bought this book for my preschool grandchildren that I care for part time. I had purchased the shell book at a garage sale & they loved it. So I went online to find other books or similar in the same series. It is something that I can enjoy with them together
