From the Back Cover

The sun wakes me up. It rises in the east and shines through my window. It is night now. The sun is down. The sky is dark. It is time to sleep.

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.

Very good but I didn't think it was quite as good as some of Gibbons' other books. That being said....I still recommend it.
