Astronomy Books for Children

I have a bright 6 year old grandson. I want to get him interested in astronomy. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good astronomy book for this age group?Best regardsDavid

Hi David,'The Young Astronomer' by Harry Ford is an excellent book for youngsters, although it might be more suitable for a slightly older age group.Best regards, Alex.

Cheapo bookshops such as WORKS often have astronomy books--well worth a look--if interest goes you will not have wasted too much money.
