Have you ever thought about the sun? Have you ever thought about what it is that you like about that great big fiery ball in the sky? Many of us like the way it warms us on a cool day and the way it melts icicles in the winter. Perhaps you like the way in which the sun is able to dry the grass after a rain shower or the way it helps makes flowers grow. How is it that the sun is able to do all these and so many other amazing things?

In this excellent picture book children will learn all about the sun and how it heats our planet, how it helps plants grow, how it creates rainbows, how it makes water sparkle on sunny days, how it turns grapes into raisins, and much more. A simple yet engaging text, fold out pages which reveal the answers to interesting sun related questions, and warm acrylic paintings make this a winning title for the curious child.
