Another lovely pen and ink story by Ey Wade. I thoroughly enjoyed this multi-purpose story and have added it to the collection of stories for my grandson. It's perfect for a wide age range of young children. It introduces basic science concepts while cleverly teaching a life-lesson as told by a loving mum. The perfect book to read with your young ones right before an eclipse.

This wonderful little book, which is beautifully illustrated by the author, provides a wonderful metaphor for solar eclipses. It presents a way to open discussions about and investigations into the solar system, folklore and the technique of metaphor in understanding complex ideas.

It is a story which a child will remember perhaps all their lives and infuses a wonder into their earliest attempt to understand the solar system. Even when they learn more about the solar system, this tale will come back to them. They will learn at some point that solar eclipses are more frequent than once a year, for example, but that is only another teachable moment when children learn about the bigger world out there, the solar system and universe. What Ey Wade has provided is an early starting point for young children to become curious about science and the mysteries of nature. It gives parents a wonderfully entertaining way to spark a life time of shared memories of these images and metaphors. Even an old person like myself can fall in love with this naive desire to "hug the sun" because, well everyone needs a hug sometimes.

Simply wonderful and charming.

The picture story eBook “Who will Hug the Sun” by Ey Wade is a great learning tool eBook -- to teach your child not only to read – but teaches a young child about the sun and the moon and how once a year a solar eclipse occurs -- it is written in a manner a child can understand -- and is a great learning story any child would love to hear their parents read to them -- and/or read themselves.

Your child will be asking you when will the moon hug the sun next, and you will have to write in your calendar when it will be – so you can schedule to allow your child the experience of seeing a solar eclipse happen.

Reminder -- when observing a solar eclipse – one should not look directly to it -- but be using special solar eclipse glasses -- be prepared for the next solar eclipse.

Unique,sweet and adorable - we thoroughly enjoyed this book. Can't wait to pick up more as school is out, and we are looking for good books. And although we love ALL books in our home, its truly special to see "ourselves" and all different colors of the rainbow as we explore..

This is a beautiful short children's story. Very cleverly written, with a wonderfully moving story line. My children loved this story when I read it. It also included a very clever little method of explaining to children what happens during an eclipse (making a difficult concept understandable for them).
