Sun! One in a Billion (Our Universe Book 2) Kindle Edition
From the author of Earth! My First 4.54 Billion Years comes a new picture book about space—this time starring our Sun!
Meet Sun: He's a star! And not just any star—he's one in a billion. He lights up our solar system and makes life possible. With characteristic humor and charm, Stacy McAnulty channels the voice of Sun in this next celestial "autobiography." Rich with kid-friendly facts and beautifully illustrated, Sun! One in a Billion is an equally charming and irresistible companion to Earth! My First 4.54 Billion Years.
From the Publisher
A Q&A with the Star* of our book, Sun *Get it? Star of our book?
Who is your favorite planet? And remember, this book will be read mostly by Earthlings.
Of course I don't have a favorite. Each is special--and kind of puny. That's like asking a human to pick a favorite fingernail.
You've been around for nearly 4.6 billion years, and are expected to shine at least 6 billion more. How do you stay so enthusiastic?
I like to keep moving. As you have read, I rotate. But also, about every 11 years, my poles change magnetic polarity. I also orbit the Milky Way--taking Earth and all my planets with me. That's a long trip--about 230 million years.
Do you have any advice for readers?
Yes. Never stare directly at me--even during a solar eclipse--because I can damage your eyes. You delicate earthlings can't handle my ultraviolet rays. Also, eat your vegetables. I helped grow them.
About the Author
Stevie Lewis has been living on the road, furthering her passion for climbing, art, and the outdoors.

These stories are narrated by their main character. So, Sun writes about itself (and does a fantastic job, I might add). Readers learn about Sun's classification in the Milky Way, its nearest neighbor stars, how hot and how far away it is from things all within a first person narrative that grabs kids' attentions.
Stevie Levis' artwork is bold and bright and inspired. Perfect for a story that takes place in outer space and on earth's surface (when discussing how Sun helps earthlings).
This is one of those series that you'll want the entire collection. We can't wait for the upcoming titles.
