From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2 Branley's updated edition on solar eclipses introduces children to the science and legends surrounding this unique event. The explanations are concise and clear. Rather than try to describe the physics of an eclipse, Branley invites readers to try a simple demonstration, using a penny, to understand how the moon blots out the sun to create the eclipse. He also details how to make a sun projector for viewing eclipses. Crews' illustrations offer a rich tapestry of pastels. The images are often impressionistic and soft, but sometimes Crews will call attention to some detail by the use of color or placing an object at an unusual angle. The results are striking and make an effective complement to this wonderful book that eclipses all others on the subject for this grade level. Alan Newman, Johns Hopkins Univ . , Baltimore
