Children of the Sun

Kabir wrote a poem on the Solar system and then both Kabir and Arjun created illustrations with the help of Mrs. Vicki Farmer.  Here’s a little back-cover summary of the book.

Designed to introduce children to the solar system, this book attempts to teach facts about the planets around our sun, from Saturn’s Rings to Jupiter’s Great Red Spot. However, in this case the story goes a step further. What if… every planet wasn’t just a sphere of rock or gas? If they each had personalities, what would they be like? Here is one artist’s attempt to represent their unique personalities, each with his or her own distinctive qualities and behaviors, through The Children of the Sun. Follow this poem through our solar system, and read for yourself these special virtues of each of the children of the Sun. At the same time, readers can learn scientific facts about the solar system. We hope that you may enjoy this poem, written and illustrated by children.
