This is the Sun

Published by Science, Naturally! (October 2022)


Follow along as a young tree uses light from the Sun to make its own food, then passes its energy along the food chain. Readers see how each living thing in the food web provides energy to the next, over and over again, until it circles back to a brand new sprout growing toward the Sun.

"...a delightful and educational children's book that puts the sun and the cycle of life in the spotlight"


"...does an extraordinary job of capturing nature's splendor and impressing upon young readers the interconnectedness of all living things. The artwork is nothing short of dazzling, as is the way each new page's words and images build on those introduced earlier. This playful, rhythmic approach uses repetition to marvelous effect in expressing both the interdependence of our planet's many species and an implied fragility."
