There are many stars in the galaxy. But only the sun wakes us in the morning, helps us to grow, plays hide-and-seek behind the clouds, and paints pretty pictures in the evening sky.
Frank Asch's gentle text and vivid illustrations celebrate the unique and wondrous qualities of our favorite and most powerful star. This is the third in a group of books for young children that explore the natural world.

About the Author:

Frank Asch has written and illustrated many popular books for children, including the Moon Bear series. He lives with his family in Middletown Springs, Vermont.

From Publishers Weekly:

Asch (the Moonbear books) is in top form with a child's simple yet lyrical paean to the sun's magic and usefulness. Following the sun from morning to night, the young narrator (of indeterminate sex) often gives way to whimsy, noting, for example, that when the sun's rays emanate from behind a cloud, "it plays hide-and-seek with me." But Asch also makes room for equally authentic observations that display a more scientific mind-set. To show that the sun's light "is bright and hot," the child focuses sunlight through a magnifying glass onto a leaf, causing it to smolder. And at night, the child points out, the sun doesn't really disappear, but rather "sends some light to keep me company" via the moon. Asch echoes this interplay between the factual and figurative in his mural-like pictures where he combines strong graphic lines with soft glowing colors. Radiating the calm coziness of a child who feels safe and secure enough in the world to explore and explain it, this volume warms the heart, in much the same way that its subject warms the earth. Ages 3-7.
