In Skywatcher by Jamie Hogan (published by Tilbury House, 2021), a young boy loves astronomy and lives in a city with lots of light pollution but he longs to see the stars properly. One day his mother takes him to the country to do just that. They see familiar constellations in the starry sky and delight in seeing the Milky Way.

Older children, especially, might relate to his story, and they would appreciate the non-rhyming and more mature tone in the text. There is a nice balance of text to the lovely and soft illustrations.
