"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.
