Summary: The sun is the star of this book as it travels around the world while Coco is asleep. It travels through frozen forests, across the desert, and over the mountains. The sun is playful, joining with the wind to blow off a fisherman’s cap. It’s patient, as it waits outside a window to be let in. Finally, it barges through Coco’s window. After rushing around the world, the sun has time to spend the day playing with Coco out in the snow. Ages 4-6.
Pros: This is a great introduction to the concept of time zones, with the sun rising in different places on earth at different times. The watercolor illustrations beautifully capture sunrise in a wide variety of environments.
Cons: It seems to be cold and snowy in every place on earth.
