This classic nonfiction picture book uses simple, fun diagrams and a guided experiment to explain what makes day and night. This book also includes a find out more section with additional activities to track nocturnal animals and to compare different times of day around the world.

If you lived on the moon, you would have two straight weeks of daylight and then two weeks of night! On earth, we have both day and night in just twenty-four hours, thanks to the quick rotation of our planet.
This picture book is written by children's book veteran and former Chairman of the American Museum–Hayden Planetarium Franklyn M. Branley and features illustrations from Pura Belpré Award Honoree Arthur Dorros. Both text and artwork were expert-vetted for accuracy. Plus the book has recently been rebranded with a fresh new look.
