What’s that above the world so high?
A star that lights our daytime sky!
We see the Sun every day. When we wake up, it rises with us. During the day, it gives us light and keeps us warm. But the Sun is just a star and there are billions of others. So why is this one so important?
A science lesson wrapped in a familiar rhyme, Twinkle, Twinkle Daytime Star introduces children to the many ways the Sun affects our world, from small things we experience every day on planet Earth, to the way our entire solar system functions.
Readers discover how this one special star affects Earth’s orbit and rotation, day and night, the changing seasons, the length of a year, the lives of plants and animals, and the production of energy and radiation, light and shadows, and even vitamins.
Twinkle, Twinkle Daytime Star is a must-have for any child who is curious about the world around them. With glowing illustrations and a well-known beginning, this charming story is a cozy way to learn about the one-of-a-kind star that makes everything possible. In this book, the Sun truly shines!
