The Sun and the Moon are best friends playing a never-ending game of tag in the sky. Many fascinating changes occur on Earth as they catch each other, hug each other, and give each other high-fives. What are those fascinating changes? Their playfulness creates eclipses, ocean tides, sunlight, and moonbeams that benefit us all.
“Award-winning finalist in the poetry-narrative category.”
Rhyming text shares facts about the sun and the moon in a kid-friendly approach. For instance, they are said to “play tag in the sky” and the illustration shows them grinning at each other from opposite sides of the world. Another spread shows the same town square by day and by night to contrast the differences. Partial eclipses are explained as the two giving each other “a high-five,” while total eclipses are caused when “they hug one another.” Tides, day and night, and the repetition that happens each morning and evening are all covered in this simple introduction. Images include children making sandcastles on the beach, eclipse viewers (with their safety glasses) gathered in the park, and sunflowers smiling by day and resting at night. Parents looking for a book to answer questions from curious youngsters about changes in the day and night sky may find this an easy introduction to the study of astronomy. The colorful illustrations and rhymes are a good fit for the preschool and early elementary crowd. Teachers in those grade levels may also wish to use it with units on the sky, space, or day and night.
