BUY THE BOOK:


My Thoughts: The Sun Plays with the Moon is a wonderfully told story about how the sun and moon play different roles in the sky. From the transition between day and night to the ever changing tides and the amazing sight of an eclipse, young children are introduced to the wonders of the sky in a thoroughly engaging story. The sweet, bright illustrations create a playful mood around the text. The Sun Plays with the Moon achieves the ultimate goal — teaching children about science without them ever realising they are learning. Plus, this book has one of the sweetest dedications I’ve read. Highly recommended for home, daycare and school libraries alike.
