Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jamie Hain
The sun is more than just another star in the sky. It is the closest star to Earth, and is what gives Earth the ability to sustain life. This book teaches young readers not only the scientific facts about the sun itself, but also about the effects of Earth's rotation around the sun on our planet. Colorful pictures and illustrations that are as engaging as they are diverse reinforce the accompanying text on each page. The small book size is perfect for the smaller hands of its young readers. Part of the "Out in Space" series, this book contains a glossary of new words, an index, a list of additional books for readers who want to learn more, and an address for accessing the publisher's online search engine. Like all of the books in this series, this one easy to read. Simple sentences make this book a great selection for young students learning about the sun and its effect on Earth for the first time.
