New revised edition
Written by Noreen Grice
Featuring New Tactile Illustrations
by Shirley Keller & Irma Goldberg
Now you can touch the stars - without leaving the house!
Written by Noreen Grice, an astronomer at Boston's Museum of Science, Touch the Stars is an astronomy book created specifically for visually impaired stargazers.
Nineteen new, carefully-rendered tactile illustrations by Creative Adaptations for Learning bring the excitement of the constellations, comets, meteor showers, and nebulae down to earth and onto the page. Seemingly visual concepts like solar and lunar eclipses become tangible through text and touch.
Find out what the constellation Orion looks like, how the moon waxes and wanes, and just what happens during a lunar or solar eclipse. Discover the rings of Saturn and Jupiter's Great Red Spot. This handsome hardcover edition tells you all of the fascinating facts about how stars are formed and the patterns they make in the sky.
Includes a print facsimile of the tactile illustrations for sighted readers.
