Staff Reviews


Laugh out loud fun facts about the sun and the items that surround it. This is one big star and not afraid to share all the information about it. Extras help this book grow with your child. Great for the classroom or home library. All ages. — Jeanette

The perfect mix of informative and hilarious, Nick Seluk engages his audience with facts about our solar system using fun descriptions and illustrations. Great for younger readers! — Jessie DeGarmo

Description


Oh hey, guess what? The Sun never stops working to keep things on Earth running smoothly. (That's why it's been Employee of the Month for 4.5 billion years.) So why does the Sun get to be the center of attention? Because it's our solar system's very own star!

This funny and factual picture book from Awkward Yeti creator Nick Seluk explains every part of the Sun's big job: keeping our solar system together, giving Earth day and night, keeping us warm, and more. In fact, the Sun does so much for us that we wouldn't be alive without it. That's kind of a big deal.

Each spread features bite-sized text and comic-style art with sidebars sprinkled throughout. Anthropomorphized planets (and Pluto) chime in with commentary as readers learn about the Sun. For instance, Mars found someone's rover. Earth wants the Sun to do more stuff for it. And Jupiter just wants the Sun's autograph. Funny, smart, and accessible, The Sun Is Kind of a Big Deal is a must-have!
