Sunny Days

Toddler-PreS–In a sequel to Snow Days, these charming couplets about fun in the sun will have their appeal to lap sitters. From morning to night, spring into summer, the sun wakes children, warms the seeds they’ve planted, dries their mud pies, sends them in search of ice cream, and sets in rosy splendor in time for bed. What will really engage the audience are the exquisite full-bleed collages in which the appearance of thickness of papers, weave of fabrics, and occasional stitchery cast slight shadows for a muted 3D effect. A multiracial array of children is shown in uncluttered, happy scenes filled with charming attention to detail. Five age-appropriate and engaging activities that feature the sun’s powers are appended.
VERDICT With its padded cover, rounded corners, and thick pages, this eye-catching yet simple look at sunshine will suit all collections that serve toddlers.
