Sun and Moon Take Turns


Description: When the daytime and nighttime animals on Earth get tired of Sun and Moon’s constant bickering over who should rule the world, they hold competitions―a cookout and a race―to determine the winner once and for all. But when neither the “night” team nor the “day” team wins in a fair way, how will they fix their problem? This beautifully illustrated story teaches kids respect for nature’s rhythms and each other. It includes a guide that helps parents and teachers explain the science of Earth’s day-and-night cycles in simple language. (Schiffer Kids)

Four Starred Review by Babybookworms’ Story Wraps

“This beautifully illustrated story reads like a fable…Along the way, young readers find out more about all of the things that the sun and moon provide for us…In addition to telling a tale about the sun and moon, the story is also a metaphor for problem solving and co-operation among people. This can open up a good discussion for children and their adults about compromise and working together”-Joyce’s Mystery and Fiction Book Reviews
