The Sun, Our RockSTAR! A STEM Book for Kids is written and illustrated by young author Anushka Bhattacharjee. With nothing much to do, the universe was relaxing, sitting around, wanting to have something to do. The universe decided to create something spectacular, and so the nebula was born. It played with protostars, space rocks, and dust to make the sun and the planets. It also created all of the other objects that orbit and fly through space. What purpose do the sun and the nebula serve? What will happen when the sun gets too old to do its job? Will everything stay in orbit? Will life still be supported?
I thoroughly enjoyed The Sun, Our RockSTAR! This picture book is an amazing trip through the scientific world of space and how everything was created. I love the way the universe has a personality of its own that makes the science behind it interesting and entertaining. The illustrations are beautifully created artwork that makes the information in the book even more fun. I recommend The Sun, Our RockSTAR! to young readers who love adventurous stories—especially those who enjoy an educational story that helps them learn more about science. I am also highly impressed that Bhattacharjee has done so well in putting this awesome book together at only ten years old. I have no doubt that this talented young lady is an inspiration to her peers and the scientific community. I look forward to seeing more STEM books by this young author.
