Five out of five stars
This is another quality science book in the Barron’s educational series, this time the subject is our personal star, the sun. The various components of the sun, from the interior to the corona are explained and contrasted. Solar eclipses and the effects that we see on Earth from the value of the light received and its components to the auroras at the poles are also explained.
All of this is done in language easily understood by the child at the late third or fourth grade level, making it a solid and inexpensive component of the elementary school library or as a textbook for a section of their science class.
