The sun is a constant presence in our lives, but itís also an ever-changing one. Different times of the day and year bring different levels of warmth and light from the sun, and these varying levels create different moods. The poems in this mini-anthology explore the earthís daily journey around the sun, while the stories personify the sun to offer creative explanations for its qualities. The accompanying articles and activities explore the sunís role in myth, culture, and everyday life.
