This e-book was incredibly insightful. The book did an excellent job of covering the important topics of the Sun, Moon, and Stars as well as the seasons. This topic is covered heavily in my first grade curriculum, so it was helpful to build my knowledge to transfer it to the classroom. I really like that the e-book is interactive. All of the moveable pictures and check points allowed me to engage with the material in a deeper way. After competing the book, I feel more confident in my ability to teach about the Sun, Moon, and Stars to my students and in the future.
