How I wonder what you are… the Sun, our most important star!


There are billions of stars, but only one makes all life on Earth possible. A science lesson wrapped in a familiar rhyme, Twinkle, Twinkle Daytime Star introduces children to the many ways the Sun affects our world.


Readers discover how this one special star affects Earth’s orbit and rotation, day and night, the changing seasons, the length of a year, the lives of plants and animals, as well as the production of energy and radiation, light and shadows, and even vitamins.


With glowing illustrations, this story is a cozy way to learn about the one-of-a-kind star that makes everything possible. In this book, the Sun truly shines!

    "There's so much to love about this book. First off the children depicted in the book are diverse and easy to identify by young readers who focus on the pictures. The art is bright, clear and full of little fun details....The way it introduces science topics like the solar system, seasons and earth's orbit are subtle. It's such a great starting point for a science lesson. I recommend this book for early childhood classrooms and any adult who wants to a great gift. Honestly even adults would enjoy it as I read it at least 3 times before having to put it down. A joyful, educational book to treasure!"

    "★★★★★ Elizabeth Everett has taken an old and beloved nursery rhyme and changed it into a scientific observation with Twinkle, Twinkle, Daytime Star. Verses flow, pointing out what adults take for granted but are new and engaging to young readers. It’s difficult to believe all this is accomplished in so few words. This book offers all kinds of great interesting conversation starters."
