Dear Mr. Sun,
First of all, I hope you are enjoying your time off this summer. Second, I am writing you because this year my second grade class is doing a science unit on the solar system. I know you are an expert when it comes to the solar system so you are just the person I want helping to select books that we will use for this unit. I was hoping you could send back book ideas that inlcude multiple picture books that way the students and I can do a picture walk and I can gain a better understanding of the students' prior knowledge. Also, I was hoping you could select a few factual books to provide the students with plenty information on each planet and the entire solar system in itself because at the end of the unit, the students are going to be responsible for building/putting together their own solar system. Please let me know if there is anything I can do or if there is anything else you need from me.
Thank you for your time and your help,
