Sun and Moon Together is a vibrant, graphic picture book compendium for preschoolers set in a Richard Scarry-inspired environment by Geisel Award-winning creator Ethan Long.

Welcome to another busy day in Happy County! The Sun is out and shining down on lots of friends. Grammy Tammy from Miami is doing grimey, slimey laundry. Sssonny Sssnakerton wants to grow sssunflowers. And when the Sun says goodbye for the day, the Moon pops up for a new set of adventures. Now Molly and her mom can make moon shadows and howl night noises.

This 48-page full-color primer is chock-full of charming characters and basic scientific concepts connected to the sun and the moon presented in simple, accessible terms for the young audience, touching on: the water cycle, phases of the moon, the solar system, and plenty of clever scenarios to keep little ones engaged.

Praise for Sun and Moon Together

A Junior Library Guild Selection

"As the sun sets and the moon takes prominence, the different types of spreads repeat. For instance, readers look for characters in a busy evening scene, Hector films a movie starring the moon, and science lessons comprise phases of the moon, tides, and the planets. ... A delightful blend of language, science, and visual literacy skills." --Booklist
