A novel education series, My First Discoveries employs transparent pages to teach young readers about everything from farm animals, polar bears and the human body to birds, airplanes and now the heavens.

The book also employs a special torch that can be found on the inside of the back cover, that allows the reader to reveal special details hidden on the book's pages.

As you read this book you'll discover fascinating things about the sky. You'll use your magic torch to discover all kinds of machines that were especially invented to fly in the sky. You'll also learn about the solar system as well as the people who have explored space. There are hundreds of satellites in the sky and you'll find out why they are up there.

If you need a little help identifying the stars and groups of stars named after animals, you'll find help in this handy little book. And finally, there is even a section about some of the popular space creatures that have appeared in novels and Sci-Fi movies.

Youngsters five and older will have fun exploring the sky in this unusual activity book that invites the reader to lend a hand in uncovering the secrets of the heavens.
