Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
This small nonfiction text in the "Discovering Nature's Cycles" series explains the cycle of days and nights in simple terms. Photographs on each page show how earth spins in space and the difference between dawn and sunrise. Sunset and dusk are defined by the facts that the sun moves lower in the sky at sunset and that one can no longer see the sun at dusk. Night is shown with a photo of a family camping and another one of the dark sky with the moon and the stars. Nelson then describes the sun coming up again in the morning and relates the fact that the cycle goes repeats continuously. An illustration shows the sun in relation to the earth and the rotation of the earth depicting day and night. A paragraph of related facts explains the process in relation to the sun. A similar explanation on the last few pages called "Day and Night Facts" adds a bit of additional information. A glossary and index are included. The text provides good basic information for a child's first explanation of this topic. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
