Children are curious by default; it is how they learn about the world around them, and we as adults may not always have the best explanation that isn’t overly complicated. That is where books come into play; they usually have a great way of saying something that we as adults overthink. The sun plays with the moon and takes the question that a child might ask about eclipses which is a beautiful astronomical event. The book lays the concept of how the sun and moon interact together and shares in simple terms what happens during an eclipse, when they can occur, and the benefits of the sun and moon interactions.
The illustrations in the book make the concepts that can be complicated, easy, and simple to understand. The book, I think, also can help with fears a young child might have about the world going dark, the sun going dark, or the moon looking odd. It is a regular occurrence that can happen anytime, and there is nothing to fear. I, for one, am thankful for books when I am unsure what to say.
