The Sun, the Moon, and the Stars is a unique collection of poems gathered by cut-paper artist Nancy Elizabeth Wallace. Opening the pages of this beautiful book is like stepping through the gates of a well-loved garden. Using her tiny scissors, her love of nature, and her great sense for the world of children, she invites us to explore this playful and lovely constellation of poems with her.Review:
As a young rabbit prepares for sleep, the pleasures of the day are recounted in couplets: ``Time with others. Time alone./Time to nurture seeds I've sown.'' In the day, there was also time to play, sing, cuddle, and hug. Each activity is impressively captured in Wallace's distinct cut-paper artwork; the colors invite readers to linger, and the scenes are immediately recognizable. The positions struck by the rabbits, e.g. two bunnies dancing about in the spray of a sprinklerare remarkably natural. While the rhymes and imagery are highly accessible, Wallace has added incidentals that expand the age range for the book, such as ladybugs, dragonflies, or a crab in a fish tank, that are fun to discover and identify. The final image of the bunny hunkering down with a teddy bear will bring smiles.
