5.0 out of 5 stars: Wonderful way for little ones to learn about astrology!
I can think of no more fabulous way to teach young ones about the astrological meaning of planets, signs, and stars–in short, the archetypes of which we are all made–than through the talented Donna McGarry’s art and words! The author/artist has created a whimsical and attractive book suitable for all, but especially so for children. She teaches us about both our differences and our similarities, and how we can learn to live together by better understanding one another. Bravo to this author and artist for bringing astrology down to earth and maintaining the tradition of storytelling in a way that keeps alive the universality of mythology–through illustrations of how the planets, stars, and signs are a part of our lives now and for time immemorial! Oh, and it’s a fun read too!
