The Sun Is Kind of a Big Deal
The Sun Is Kind of a Big Deal | Nick Seluk
3 posts | 3 read | 2 to read
Oh hey, guess what? The Sun never stops working to keep things on Earth running smoothly. (That's why it's been Employee of the Month for 4.5 billion years.) So why does the Sun get to be the center of attention? Because it's our solar system's very own star! This funny and factual picture book from Awkward Yeti creator Nick Seluk explains every part of the Sun's big job: keeping our solar system together, giving Earth day and night, keeping us warm, and more. In fact, the Sun does so much for us that we wouldn't be alive without it. That's kind of a big deal. Each spread features bite-sized text and comic-style art with sidebars sprinkled throughout. Anthropomorphized planets (and Pluto) chime in with commentary as readers learn about the Sun. For instance, Mars found someone's rover. Earth wants the Sun to do more stuff for it. And Jupiter just wants the Sun's autograph. Funny, smart, and accessible, The Sun Is Kind of a Big Deal is a must-have!

This was cute and funny. I particularly enjoyed spotting Pluto in the background. And I love that the Sun wears sunglasses; that's exactly how I draw it 😂☀️😎

rabbitprincess @RachelO It is! I'll need to keep it in reserve for the next round of baby or small kid gifts. (edited) 7mo

jessicabaksh UDL principle 2.1 and ESOL strategy 12 both support this book well because they emphasize language, vocabulary, and content 9mo

claireherman I can already hear students laughing! I want to check out this book and include it in a solar system lesson! 9mo
DrSpalding Just looking at the front cover, you know that this is not necessarily non-fiction. What genre is it? 9mo
