by Athena Yvette Portillo

Many children gaze at the moon in the nighttime sky or ponder the power of the sun during the day. Taken for granted by many adults, these heavenly orbs often produce a sense of wonder in the very young.

This delightful book shares a conversation between the moon and the sun as each explains what makes them unique. Although whimsical in presentation, Sun and Moon offers a factual introduction to their traits and emphasizes that they each have an important role in the universe.


A San Francisco native, Athena Yvette Portillo has had a passion for writing since authoring several articles for her alma mater, Mercy High School. She received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from San Francisco State University and now works in the film industry as a producer. Athena was motivated to write this book by her love of children and hopes that they will learn that “ no matter what shape, size, and color one is, he or she is an equal and has so much to offer this small world.”
