About the Author:

Emily Morgan is an author-educator who knows how to connect with children both intellectually and emotionally. A former elementary and middle school teacher, she coauthors the series Picture-Perfect Science and the “Teaching Through Trade Books” column in Science and Children, NSTA’s elementary-level journal, and is the author of the Next Time You See series from NSTA Press.

Review:

This purposeful book is meant to increase a child s enjoyment of a sunset as well as explain why it occurs, but it never becomes overly prescriptive. The author s opening note to parents and teachers, encouraging the child to experience a sunset before any discussion or explanation, sets the tone of wonder and curiosity preceding understanding. Many of the beautiful photographs are spread over the gutter, with the text, often simple questions or descriptions, supplementing the viewing experience. This is a celebration of the natural world as well as a guide to experiencing it; humans only appear in photographs describing shadows. --Booklist October 15, 2013

These books expect to inspire in students a sense of wonder at natural phenomena and also to encourage readers to wonder things for themselves. ...Of course, a sense of wonder at the natural world is most powerfully created when it is experienced directly, and the books take great pains to acknowledge this. Although each page is dominated by photographs of excellent quality, it is acknowledged that this is no substitute for the real thing and readers are urged to get out and experience things for themselves through a range of suggested activities. In Next Time You See a Sunset there are descriptions of how to use globes in order to understand that sunsets are not something that can be explained simply on a flat page, but a physical movement in the 3D world. Further resources are available online, but these are mainly just extended versions of the suggested activities in the books. These books would be great accompaniments to a nature table, or as invitations to exploration for students to use independently, but would be equally effective as coffee table books for students to browse during quiet reading for example, as a simple reminder of some of the amazing features of our world. --Primary Science January/February 2014
