About the Author

Gail Gibbons grew up writing stories and drawing pictures to fit the words, and wishing she lived in the country. After graduating from the University of Illinois with a bachelor of fine arts degree, she became involved in television graphics. This led her to work on a children’s TV show, where her desire to write and illustrate children’s books was rekindled. Eventually Gail became a full-time writer and moved to rural Vermont, where she could have a garden and as many pets as she wanted. Gail has written more than 140 books and has made countless visits to schools. The feedback she gets from children is invaluable and often inspires ideas for future projects. Gail and her husband, Kent Ancliffe, have a dog named Wilbur and two cats, named Miles and Davis. They live in Vermont in a passive solar house that Gail’s husband built and on an island off the coast of Maine.


More About the Author

Gail Gibbons has published close to fifty distinguished nonfiction titles with Holiday House. According to "The Washington Post," "Gail Gibbons has taught more preschoolers and early readers about the world than any other children's writer-illustrator." She lives in Vermont.

Format: Paperback
I am a teacher and my students in first grade enjoyed this book. It enhances their interest in the solar system and provides easy-to-understand information about the closest star to our Earth. Illustrations are simple and aid in explaining science concepts to children. A great book for young learners.

We purchased this book to go with my son's homeschool science lessons for Kindergarten. It did a good job explaining information about the sun on a pre-school/Kindergarten level, but was certainly not comprehensive. You could probably find a more truly "science" oriented book about the sun out there, but this one does have nice illustrations, and keeps things on the level that a Kindergartener understands well. Overall, it did what we needed it to do, explain things about the sun and sunlight.

This is a good way to get students talking about what the sun is and how we need it. You will need to use others for the Colorado kindergarten science standard.
