We’ve had the chance to review the second issue of Celestial Almanack and I continue to be impressed.
The format is similar to that of the January issue, which one would expect. Below is a snapshot of the almanack’s table of contents.
The reader does get some background information on leap years as we are currently in one. I’d pretty much forgotten it was a leap year until I was reading this. So, I appreciated not only learning about why February is an odd month when it comes to the sky, but also having the reminder in such a gentle way. I also loved that he included information about February 2nd having been the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord and how the liturgical year also marks the seasons.
Yet again, Jay has pulled together a wonderful resource to engage your family in the study of the heavens. You will find Celestial Almanack on Currclick with a retail price of $3. With almost 3 weeks left in the month, you will have plenty of time to use this resource in your house, too.
