All Summer in a Day by Ray Bradbury

All Summer in a Day by Ray Bradbury is a short story that would make a wonderful introduction to a science fiction genre unit. Set in Venus where it rains all the time and the sun only shines for one day every seven years, the story features a group of children who are too young to see the sun — except for one girl who has recently arrived from Earth. She shares her love of the sun through metaphor and poetry, and Bradbury explores what happens when a group of children, left to their own devices, grapple with jealousy.
