Dear Sun, Dear Moon
With the “Great American Solar Eclipse” rapidly approaching (Aug. 21, 2017), teachers, parents, and grandparents are frantically searching for books on eclipses for their students/children. Deborah Paggi’s book is a cleverly written conversation between the Sun and the Moon, each touting the attributes of the other. It would be a lovely one to share with your children, even if an eclipse weren’t approaching. Sprinkled with science concepts about the sun and moon in a storybook fashion, this text is sure to be a hit with K—3rd grade children. Not to be a spoiler, but the story ends with the sun and moon coming together in an eclipse. Gayle Cole’s beautiful illustrations ensure this will be a bedtime or story time favorite.
