" Nice book, but is too long for Twilight Tales. " said.

" Great way to introduce the sun and moon to Kindergarten or 1st graders, the simple text is able to convey science facts without ever getting too dry. " said.

"Reviewed for School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 1—In this colorful work, a girl and a boy go on a voyage to discover more about the two most noticeable celestial bodies: the sun and the moon. Readers are invited to join in by identifying the sun and moon and discussing how they are seen on a regular basis, including the different phases of the moon. The two protagonists blast off in a spaceship to explore the moon from a closer vantage point. On the way, they learn about Earth's rotation, the distance between the moon and Earth, what the moon's surface consists of, and a few things left on it by previous explorers—from moon buggies to golf balls. Later, they zoom onward for a closer look at the sun and learn about its composition, prominences, solar flares, and sunspots. Illustrations show the pair looking back at Earth in the distance, keeping a sense of perspective along the journey. A glossary of new words, several suggested experiments, and a list of websites add to the book's usefulness and will appeal to students with various learning styles. Brightly colored illustrations by Morley, made from watercolor and traditional media enhanced digitally, augment the text. Each spread offers a different dramatic layout to keep children alert as pages are turned. VERDICT A worthy addition to science collections looking for materials for beginner space enthusiasts.—Suzanne LaPierre, Fairfax County Public Library, VA

" May 2017 - straightforward, clear information about the sun and moon. Any time I felt like a fact needed clarifying for a preschool audience, the very next sentence would provide clarification, so I felt like it was right on target with what Ben could understand. Ben was totally interested but very concerned with telling me that he didn't want to go to the sun. Good news, buddy. " said.
