What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Day turns into night and some animals drift to sleep while others spring to life in this beautiful high-contrast board book.

Sun rises. Bird sings.

And so the day begins in this beautifully simple board book with bold artwork and lyrical text that shows us the passing of time in the day. Fish swim under a blue sky, squirrels dream as the sun sets, the moon rises as stars blink, and an owl hoots when night falls. With word repetition and a single tree that houses both the bird who sings as the sun rises and the owl who hoots after the moon rises, little ones can begin to understand that the day begins and ends in the same way.

I just LOVE this book. The amatuer artist inside of me is obsessed with the unique illustration style and the colors are fun and engaging. I’m a sucker for a good rhyming book (where the rhymes feel natural rather than forced) and this one somehow manages to be both fun and calming. My son absolutely loves this book and asks for it again, and again, and again, and I don’t mind one little bit!

I think this is such a fun, different bedtime book! I love that it starts with the sunrise and goes throughout the hours of the day showing what animals are doing as the day progresses and nighttime falls. Also, super cute illustrations and a great rhyme!
