Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-A young deaf boy awakens to the light of his special alarm clock, puts in his hearing aids, and tiptoes to awaken his father. Together they walk to the beach, observing nature. Jacob and his father have ``lots of ways of talking...signing or lipreading or just squeezing each other's hands.'' For the most part, the straightforward text employs vigorous language: crunchy shells and snaky seaweed, hermit crabs scoot and sea gulls swoop and gobble; but a few of the word choices, such as ``eensy'' and ``orangier,'' are less effective. Each page of text, placed on a pastel rectangle and bordered by lots of white space, faces a full-page, full-color illustration. Steele's striking watercolors employ earth tones; blues and greens; and red-orange, pale gold, and pink. The range of light is effectively conveyed, from the predawn dark to the brilliant sunrise at the end. (A quibble-two double-page spreads depicting the sunrise are actually darker than the four previous pictures, one of which finds Jacob saying, ``It's getting lighter.'') This story is similar to, but somewhat wider in scope than, Uri Shulevitz's Dawn (Farrar, 1974). Appropriate for both one-on-one and group sharing.-Cynthia K. Richey, Mt. Lebanon Public Library, Pittsburgh, PA
Annie Ayres
In a special morning interlude, a young boy awakens his father, and they go down to the beach to watch the sunrise. The young boy is deaf, but he and his father have many ways of communicating. Dealt with simply, as part of the reality of their relationship, the boy's deafness is unobtrusively woven into this story about a father and child sharing a moment in time. In tune with the sensitive tone of the text, Steele's atmospheric watercolor illustrations capture the rising light of dawn as well as the love between the boy and his father. Reminiscent of Jane Yolen's "Owl Moon" 1987, this warm story can be considered for all picture book collections.
