Ford Goes Looking for the Sun
I am very proud of this book, which I like to describe as a story text. Story because it is a simple, fun, and interesting story to read. Text because it offers science education to its readers!
Ford Goes Looking for the Sun is the quest of a curious boy who goes looking for the Sun. His mission is to ask the Sun a question.
Even though the story is quite simple, science concepts run deep as they are told. Children are introduced to the wondrous magic of science in the world around them.
Within each two-page illustration is a 'hidden word or symbol' for your children to find. These words and symbols are science concepts which relate directly to the story. More importantly, they provide scientific information that can be further studied and explored with a parent or teacher.
A key to the hidden words and symbols can be found at the back of the book. Ford Goes Looking for the Sun is about us, and how we fit into the world around us.
This is my first book - stay tuned for sequels to the series!
