In easy-to-read style, simple experiments with common household objects teach young readers first-hand about solar power. The book makes learning fun and appeals to children who want to try things out for themselves. Step-by-step directions are given for each experiment along with a complete list of the items needed. In each project, the sun is the hero and (in story form) the book uses three children as characters to ask questions and then perform the experiments which are "done in the sun." Parents and teachers will welcome this book as an aid to explaining how the sun works for all of us. Fully illustrated, black and white line drawings, bibliography. Anne Hillerman is a professional journalist and writer and is the author of many books including "Children's Guide to Santa Fe," also from Sunstone Press. She is the daughter of Southwest mystery writer Tony Hillerman and lives in Santa Fe with her photographer husband.
