DISCOVER PLANETWATCH: A Year-Round Guide to the Night Sky With a Make-Your-Own Planetfinder by Cliff Hatchett, illustrations by Brian Sullivan (Hyperion: $9.95; 128 pp., paperback original). This attractive how-to book, aimed at parents and amateur astronomers, provides basic instructions for observing the moon, planets and major stars, and recording those observations in words and pictures. Plans for simple astronomical devices that can be used with or without a telescope offer parents a chance to share a "hands-on" learning experience with their children.
