book cover of children's book Total Solar Eclipse: A Stellar Friendship Story
Total Solar Eclipse: A Stellar Friendship Story by Jayme Sandberg

Just about a month away from the region's second total solar eclipse in seven years, a new children's book helps prepare kids for the big event.

In this edition of In The Author's Voice we talk with Nebraska mom, Jayme Sandberg, who was inspired to write a children's book after experiencing the total solar eclipse in 2017. Her new book is "Total Solar Eclipse: A Stellar Friendship."

You can find out more about the book as well as its associated educational materials at www.solareclipsebook.com.
