The Sun and the Places Where it Shines

The Sun and the Places Where it ShinesWhat does the sun give us apart from warmth and light? How many days are there on Mercury? How many moons does Jupiter have?

  • Really good book. My little boy and I read it together. He loves learning about the solar system. It’s art was beautiful, the information was really interesting for me to learn. If it ever gets published, it would be really nice to have a copy for my kids to read over and over again. Thank you for making this available to read.

    Colorful and vividly illustrated, this paperback takes young readers on a voyage to all the planets and space stones where our nearest star, the Sun, shines.

    In this picture book, it teaches children about different planets in our solar system. The cartoon pictures make the book look colourful and bright as well as simple and sweet making it entertaining younger for readers. Although it is very factual explaining what planets are hotter and colder, regarding the title. But a few other fun facts about the planets also. For younger readers, they use descriptive language and compare planets colour and other distinct features to everyday things. The book can be downloaded or read online for free and the hard copy is only $15.00 which I think is great for all parents that want an educational but quick book to read to their kids. This book I rated it as 4 out of 5 stars.
