Solstice: Around the World on the Longest, Shortest Day

We rated this book:


Solstice is the longest or shortest day of the year depending on the season. What is so incredibly cool about this book is that this book goes around the world with how different parts of the country view and celebrate the Solstice on June 21st. In the USA, July 21st is the summer solstice and the longest day of the year for us but this is not true for everywhere including the cold and dark south pole that gets NO sunlight on June 21st.

This book has 14 illustrators around the world for each of the different locations. I think that makes this book unique. This book is full of so many fun facts about places all over the world. I can’t wait to read and compare again how each place is different when the summer solstice arrives.
