Gr. 1-3. "Each day you ride on a slowly spinning planet Earth from day to night and back again." In clear language suitable for beginning readers, this explains the Earth's cycles of rotation, which cause the shifts between day and night and the seasons, as well as the moon's varying shape. Straightforward, realistic watercolor illustrations alternate between scenes of seasonal activity on Earth (riding a bike, raking leaves, sledding) and powerful, deep blue spreads of outer space. Direct, simple, and ideal for classroom support, this appealing introduction to Earth's movement remains narrowly focused on its topic, so children learning about space for the first time may want to supplement this with other books that show Earth within the larger solar system.
