KIRKUS REVIEW

The sun, the traditions which surround it, the scientists who investigated it, in fact the entire body of knowledge surrounding earth's most important star, is the subject of this concise text. Lee Ames alternates decorative drawings with charts, graphs and photographs in an effort to make clear the nature of the sun and its effect on the life of this planet. And Roy Gallant's explicit and fact-filled text make Exploring the Sun a welcome companion to his four previous books which deal respectively with the universe, Mars, the moon, and the weather. Not recommended for pure amusement, but an excellent supplement for class room work.
