From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-6-- ``Sing to the sun/ It will listen/And warm your words/ Your joy will rise/ Like the sun/ and glow/ Within you.'' Thus begins this collection of original poems that captures the beauty of nature along with human emotion and circumstance, and children are sure to enjoy its rhymic descriptive verse. Bryan does a magnificent job of conveying an evocative and palpable message to young listeners and readers. Illustrations in his distinguished style depict characteristics of African-American culture combined with flowers, birds, fish, rising suns, and full moons to create a splendid artistic work with wide appeal. --Barbara Osborne Williams, Queens Borough Public Library, Jamaica, NY
