WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, January 23, 2024 / — The sky we see each night is only a small window into the awe-inspiring universe we live in. Science Naturally is pleased to publish Twinkle, Twinkle, Nighttime Sky, the second book in the Skytime series by Elizabeth Everett. It will be published in a board book edition, with a bilingual English/Spanish edition to be released simultaneously.

The first book in the Skytime series, Twinkle, Twinkle Daytime Star, illuminated the relationship we have with our closest star, the Sun. School Library Journal wrote: “Written in bouncing rhyming couplets that are easy to digest, the deceptively simple text presents essential scientific facts… seamlessly interwoven with everyday experiences.”

Now, Twinkle, Twinkle, Nighttime Sky explores the universe beyond our solar system, venturing from the moon to distant galaxies! Perfect for ages two to seven, Twinkle, Twinkle, Nighttime Sky is a sweet story that teaches kids about astronomy while they sing (or listen) along to a familiar bedtime rhyme. Readers learn about constellations, how the moon affects the tides, astronauts and the moon landing, our Milky Way galaxy, phenomena like nebulas and asteroids, and so much more.

Illustrator Beatriz Castro fills the book with diverse characters and breathtaking depictions of space, from brilliantly colored nebulas to blazing comets. With her detailed artwork, this book is a captivating adventure full of wonder.

The bilingual English/Spanish edition of this book, Twinkle, Twinkle, Nighttime Sky / Brilla, brilla, cielito de la noche, will be released alongside the English edition. The rhyming Spanish text was adapted and reviewed by native speakers to ensure that the language is accurate and rhythmic. Science Naturally is committed to publishing works in a variety of world languages to help children everywhere get excited about science and reading.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Nighttime Sky is a must-have for children who love marveling at the stars and learning about astronauts and planets. Filled with fascinating facts and breathtaking illustrations, this book puts our one-of-a-kind planet in perspective!

To expand and extend the content, Science Naturally will provide a free, downloadable Teacher’s Guide in English on their website, including discussion questions, hands-on activities, and experiments to encourage young minds to think more about the moon, stars, and space.
