Nick Seluk - The Sun Is Kind of a Big Deal

The Sun Is Kind of a Big Deal

Author: Nick Seluk; Illustrator: Nick Seluk

  • AGES 4 - 8 
  • Genre Informational Text
The Sun never stops working to keep things on Earth running smoothly. (That's why it's been Employee of the Month for 4.5 billion years.) So why does the Sun get to be center of attention? Because it's our solar system's very own star!



This funny and factual picture book from Awkward Yeti creator Nick Seluk explains every part of the Sun's big job: keeping our solar system together, giving Earth day and night, keeping us warm, and more. In fact, the Sun does so much for us that we wouldn't be alive without it. That's kind of a big deal.



Each spread features bite-sized text and comic-style art with sidebars sprinkled throughout. Anthropomorphized planets (and Pluto) chime in with commentary as readers learn about the Sun.
