K-Gr 2–When the Sun and Moon have a tea party that ends in an argument about what people do on Earth, Cloud comes to the rescue. Cloud explains that they are both right, but each will need to stay up past their bedtime to see how people really spend their time. And in this way the Moon learns many things about daytime and Sun finds out about the night. Stoop’s mixed-media illustrations are colorful and detailed, with lovely depictions of nature and people in their opposite orbs.
VERDICT This is a clever look at how the Sun and Moon have different perspectives on what humans do on Earth, and has great potential for post-reading discussions.
