Shabana - Why Is the Sky Blue? - Virtual Book Tour review

Shabana - Why Is the Sky Blue? - Virtual Book Tour

While playing at the beach, two boys begin to wonder why the sky is the reason to them. As they are very young, their mother needs to decide how best to explain to her boys. 
She discusses the phenomenon of the blue sky in a manner that even her six year old can understand. 
While addressing their initial query, the boys come up with several other related questions, and the mother
 answers them all with simple facts and drawings. To make it easier and more interesting, she performs a 
fun experiment with her boys, which shows them why the sky is blue at sunrise and red/orange at sunset.

The book is a must have for all those curious kids who are trying to make sense of the 
world around them, and for all those parents who want to satisfy their curiosity.

My Review:
This is a great book that really explains everything from ROY G BIV and the rainbow to wavelengths. I even learned something from this book. There are also little blurbs that give tidbits of info. The pictures were interesting and my niece loved his book! We will be trying the experiment this week!
I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own! My Sister homeschools and she had me print out a copy for her library!


Shabana, a Canadian, spent her early years in various countries and now lives with her husband, 
two sons in Singapore.

She has a Master’s degree in Education from Newfoundland and a Master’s in Business Administration 
from Windsor, Canada.

She worked for a telecommunication company in Canada and Singapore for thirteen years as a marketing 
and business development professional. She’s currently working as a Director at a consulting firm, and serving 
as the Vice President/room parent co-ordinator of the PTA at her sons’ school.

She loves to read both fiction and non-fiction books. Her kids are also avid readers and love performing 
experiments and finding out how things work. She conducts weekly experiments with them based on their 
interest and level of understanding.

It was her boys’ curiosity and endless questions that led her to write her first book, Why is the Sky Blue?  

She plans to write a series of non-fiction books on thought-provoking and interesting topics for children.
