WILD & WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY: Sun! One in a Billion by Stacy McAnulty


Meet Sun: He's a star! And not just any star—he's one in a billion. He lights up our solar system and makes life possible. With characteristic humor and charm, Stacy McAnulty channels the voice of Sun in this next celestial "autobiography." Rich with kid-friendly facts and beautifully illustrated, this is an equally charming and irresistible companion to Earth! My First 4.54 Billion Years


SUN! combines darling illustrations with a fun, informative text.  Sun is, of course, telling his own story.  He wants to make sure that the reader knows just how important he is.  This would come across as obnoxious if he weren't so friendly looking in the illustrations.  The information is blended beautifully with the story leaving the reader almost unaware he/she has learned anything.  There is some additional information at the back of the book for readers who want to know more.  This book would work well both at home and in a classroom.  This book would make a fun introduction to a unit on the solar system and the sun's importance in it.  The illustrations are large and attractive and cleverly done.  A book both amusing and educational.
