This is the Sun that makes the world go round!

From the tiniest animal to the tallest tree, everything on Earth is connected through the circle of life. But at the center of it all is a different kind of circle—the Sun!

Through a charming story with rhythmic repetition, young children are introduced to the bright Sun that provides energy for life on Earth.

Follow along as a young tree uses light from the Sun to make its own food, then passes its energy along the food chain… until it circles all the way back to a brand new sprout growing toward the Sun. Readers see how each living thing in the food web provides energy to the next, over and over again.

The vibrant collage art grows along with the increasingly multilevel story. As you read, look for the bug, spider, lizard, fox, and more as they move through each of the pages and build a full ecosystem.

This is the Sun gives readers a glimpse into how all the living things are connected through the circle of life—and the role the Sun plays in making it all possible.
