Far Beyond the Sun: Fun Educational Adventure for Kids Giveaway

Far Beyond the Sun is an adorable story for children. Inspired by the imagination of a child, it takes us on an fun (yet educational) little journey as Brian sets out to be taller than the sun.

Far Beyond the Sun: Fun Educational Adventure for Kids Giveaway @Crafty_ZooIf you’ve gone through my Children’s Book List, there are many that I just love and have enjoyed sharing with various nieces, nephews, my grandsons and other babies that visit. There’s something so magical about the love of stories in children. Their imaginations aren’t limited by reality and it’s beautiful to me. There are so many wonderful story books there, some fiction some factual but all are entertaining.

The author, father of a very inquisitive little girl, takes inspiration from the endless questions that come from the wonderful mind of his little princess. The questions little ones ask are always fun to hear but sometimes they are downright difficult to answer. That line between keeping their attention and teaching them new things can sometimes be difficult to manage. Plus, no one wants to take away their innocence with the harsh realities of life.

Along with the review copy that I was sent was a brief thank you for reviewing and the background of the inspiration for the story. Dolev said that he’d taken his daughter camping and she proceeded, as children often do, to throw a ton of questions his way. When asking if she could be taller than the sun, he was struck by inspiration. That’s how Far Beyond the Sun came about.

Far Beyond the Sun: Fun Educational Adventure for KidsAbout the Book

Brian wants to be taller than the sun but is not sure how? His journey will take you through the tallest places on earth while looking for an answer. After almost losing all hope, he finds an unexpected way to go beyond the sun in the attic above his bedroom.

The description on Amazon says that it is recommended by teachers and fits the curriculum for k-2 grades but I feel like it would be a fun book as early as 3 1/2-4 years old. At that time they may not quite understand the totality of distance and such, but then again as an adult I honestly can’t picture what the tallest mountain would look like in person either. I’ve never been good with distance!

The author, Dolev Zaharony, is a tech marketer by day and both a writer and musician by night. He began his writing after the birth of his first child, as they provide him with endless inspiration. As a parent, he utilizes that inspiration to tell his children stories to uplift them and help them overcome life obstacles. In Far Beyond the Sun, he sneaks in a little geography, science (the solar system), history and spacial references to help educate while having fun. (Every parent’s goal, right?)

      haha! I think that question is a classic! Sometimes I wish we’d had google back in the day, then other times I wish we didn’t have it now. Seems like life was so much more simple before!

    The wildest thing a child ever asked was if my oldest was adopted. I laughed and said no.

      haha! I think siblings always think the others (or at least the ones they don’t remember being born) had to be adopted, otherwise they surely wouldn’t be driving them crazy. Kids are funny.

    I like the simplicity of the illustrations in this book. Bold colors and lines.

    Funniest thing a child ever asked me off the top of my head is the time my oldest asked me what flavor frosting I was getting for my hair after he heard me talking about going to the salon to get my hair frosted.

    I craziest thing my kid asked me was, “If you had a brain transplant, would you be a different person?” Actually, maybe not so crazy. I said I didn’t know, but I thought you would be the same person.

      That is a crazy one! Definitely a fun exercise for the imagination. Like, maybe we would be a genius or become some other type of professional. I’ve always been interested in those things, but I think it’s even more fun to go into the creative side and imagine silly things!

    It sounds like a fun story! My son once asked – if the earth moves, why can’t I feel it? My answer – ask daddy, he would enjoy explaining it!!

      Girl, I’m the same! The big questions are for Daddy to explain! I’d rather stick to the silly side of things.

    I have to say this old saying was very hard to hear asking me where babies come from stops you in your tracks

      Yes it does! It’s so hard to know what to answer, if you answer it correctly they’ll have a million more questions, innocence is shattered AND there’s a good chance you’ll be meeting with teachers when they educate their classmates! haha. BUT, on the flip side, what exactly does one say? I have yet to have the answer. Mine is usually to change the subject and get them distracted. Shameful tactic, but it works!
