The Sun is Kind of a Big Deal by Nick Seluk

The sun is Kind of a Big Deal book cover: illustration of a sun on a red carpet with various planets cheering behind a rope in the background“That’s why [ the sun’s ] been employee of the month for 4.5 billion years and counting.”

It can be hard to explain things that we don’t interact with everyday especially things that happen all the time without us noticing. That bright ball in the sky is Earth’s best friend and does so much to help us. Nick Seluk makes concepts like the changing of seasons, how large our solar system is, and the water cycle accessible for younger readers in K-2nd. This book relates such large concepts to everyday activities and objects with cartoonish visuals that younger readers will be able to relate too.
