More About the Book: After hearing about the total solar eclipse happening in two months, a boy makes a plan with his father to go see it. They drive to the perfect campsite, not wanting to miss the couple of minutes when the sun will be completely hidden by the moon. When the moment happens, being together makes it even more special. Eclipse is a heartfelt and playfully illustrated ode to seeking out unique adventures and savoring special moments with the people you love. Back matter about eclipses and maps of eclipses’ paths across the United States make this book perfect for STEAM curriculum.
