Solstice is about much more than the sun. This full-color book offers a snapshot of a day in the life of fourteen children around the world, with each chapter illustrated by an artist with connections to that culture, ranging from the south pole to Nepal, Morocco to China, and many places in between.

This book is stuffed full with information, but it is still quite an easy read. Science lovers and language explorers can find fun facts like average temperatures and vocabulary words in the local language.

In addition to exploring solstice traditions, the children in each chapter talk about their family and daily life, which is a great way to learn about their local culture and what it means to grow up in different places.

This book is a celebration of global culture and the common things that bring us all together.
