My Light - Molly Bang We recently read [b:Ocean Sunlight: How Tiny Plants Feed the Seas|13039569|Ocean Sunlight How Tiny Plants Feed the Seas|Molly Bang|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1344693911s/13039569.jpg|18203420] and [b:Living Sunlight: How Plants Bring The Earth To Life|6013416|Living Sunlight How Plants Bring The Earth To Life|Molly Bang|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1328840403s/6013416.jpg|6188661], and we found My light to be a good companion to those works. My niece thinks that these books are most enjoyable and effective when read together, because they sort of build upon each other. Although these don't have to be read in any particular order, I thought My Light made a good final book. While it's similar to the other two books, those two are more similar to one another, and My Light takes us in a slightly different direction.

After we finished this book we talked about what we had learned about the sun. The kids learned that without the sun there would be no life and no energy for us to harness. Then the kids spent time looking around the room and identifying various objects that require energy to run. This was another well done, informative book!
