Reviews

"What causes this particular item to stand out for me is the choice the editor made to illustrate the title with fourteen different artists ... So essentially you're getting science and history and cultural significance all at once." - Betsy Bird, School Library Journal

"What is so incredibly cool about this book is that this book goes around the world with how different parts of the country view and celebrate the Solstice." - Liam, aged 12, in Kids Book Buzz
