TOTALITY!  An Eclipse Guide in Rhyme and Science – Book Promotion

I received a copy of TOTALITY! An Eclipse Guide in Rhyme and Science ($19.99/hardcover) in exchange for this post. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.

Did you know the next annular eclipse will be on October 14, 2023, or the next total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024? If not, Jeffrey Bennett sure did and he’s preparing us for these events with his new book, TOTALITY!  An Eclipse Guide in Rhyme and Science.

Jeffrey’s new book is a children’s hardcover book

that engages those 8 and up regarding their curiosity about eclipses.  Each page has a quick childlike rhyme but then goes into depth regarding the science of an eclipse along with great photos, diagrams, etc.

This book is actually a GREAT teaching tool for a classroom with all the great diagrams of the paths of totality for all solar eclipse past and future, explanations of the difference in types of eclipses, moon phases, eclipse shadows, eclipse conditions and so much more.

Each page also asks a question…..such as ”Why do eclipses happen about twice a year?”

along with a very detailed explanation which makes this children’s book suitable for a very wide range of ages.  It also includes a glossary, suggested activities to perform, a summary, AND two pairs of eclipse glasses that include instructions on how to use them.  There is also a FREE downloadable app to help you prepare for these two events.

Books can be purchased at your local bookstore or at Amazon.  Get your copy today to prepare for the next annular and total eclipse.
