A sweet story about the lonely Sun and lonely moon and how they become friends.
The book can be used as a gentle introduction to orbit cycles and eclipses.

"Sun and Moon" goes through the different weather conditions. It talks about wind, thunderstorms, rainbows, and the moon. The Sun goes through saying why he doesn't like thunderstorms and wind, but does like the rainbow anow moon. I like how it talks about when they are in refrence to weather. This is a good book for if you were teaching students about weather ages 6-8.

This book shows a cool thing to think about with the sun and moon and how they could be friends. I like how the author discusses possible friends for sun but they can't be and it really makes you think how true it is. This would be a great book to show students descriptive details and imagery.

The book talks about the relationship of the sun and moon to the earth and how they can only meet every so often on an eclipse. I also liked the book because it talked about other things that the sun and moon come in contact with and how they are affected.
Both Sun and Moon are lonely in their lives until one day they meet and shares a memorable time. They become friends and look forward to meeting each other, making each other's lives better, both becoming very happy.

Both the Sun and Moon tell the Earth how lonely they are and how they wish for a friend. They would be perfect for each other, but how would they meet? A solar eclipse!
