The Ginn Science topic book Earth Moon and Sun was written for students in Year Two (Primary Three) aged six to seven years and published in 1992. It relates to the content strand ‘Earth and space’, has 24 pages and requires a considerably higher reading level than other Ginn Science Year Two students’ books. 

Using full-colour drawings and photographs it shows the movement of the Earth and Moon relative to the Sun and uses this to explain the meaning of a day and a year; and why the time of day varies around the world. It describes but does not explain differences in seasons between the northern and southern hemispheres.

The impact of the weather on buildings and on the soil is illustrated.
