9780982699829: Sunbelievable: Connecting Children With Science and Nature. Mom's Choice First Place Gold Award Recipient

MOM'S CHOICE AWARD 2012! Sunbelievable is a humorous, educational/science children's picture book about the Sun for ages 4-8. Does the Sun ride roller coasters? Teach fireflies to shine? Take bubble baths when eating pizza? To help her younger sister Leen fall asleep at bedtime, YaYa tells her about the Sun s amazing exploits. Skeptical Leen challenges YaYa s tales and invents her own hilarious twists and surprises. Together, they create not only a wildly funny story, but also discover the power of shared imagination. The illustration style, using digital photo collage, features real children whose dialogue unfolds in brilliant, magical landscapes. An educational piece with facts about the real Sun is contributed by NASA's Chief Technologist.

Sunbelievable is uniquely geared toward young readers, helping them connect storytelling with science and nature. If the Sun can ride roller coasters, anything is possible!

Review:

Sunbelievable offers young readers the best of both worlds: an amusing story about a personified Sun and a page of true facts about the star we call the Earth s Sun. While the Sun's story will encourage readers to use their imagination to create even wilder stories about the Sun's life, the page of facts will encourage learning about the Earth's Sun. --San Francisco Book Review
