Sun Song

Overview

Rich oil paintings and a lyrical text sing the praises of the farm country sun—as it wakes the turtles and the sheep in the morning, rises high over the crops at noon, and when, at dusk, it bids good night to all creatures and slips away with the promise of a brand new day.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Radiant large-scale, exactly detailed paintings light up this often bland poem. Marzollo, the author of the I Spy series, summons the sun to shine down on a host of living things: "Sun, light the woods/ With a soft spring dawn;/ Shine on the spots/ Of a newborn fawn." After the sun awakens a sleeping boy and his puppy, the latter is seen investigating blooming flowers and vegetables from the garden, all nourished by the sun. A new order is issued at sunset "Sun, be wild./ Sun, be bold./ Paint skies pink/ And purple and gold", whereupon the sky darkens and the pup and child curl up in bed until "a brand-new dawn" arrives. The gentle rhythm and sing-song quality make this verse a good bedtime book for beginning readers. Regan's Welcome to the Green House art features a soothing, pastel-dominated palette-and introduces a downright adorable puppy. In a move likely to intrigue observant readers, none but the cover picture depicts the sun itself. Ages 4-8. May
Children's Literature - Dia L. Michels
Sun Song is a colorful poem that salutes the day. Done in gentle pastels, with large appealing illustrations of nature, this book of verse takes us through a 24-hour period starting at the dawn of a new day. The pictures bring us to various settings; we see a mother bird feeding her young, and a panoramic view of sheep grazing on rolling hills. The verse is sweet. On the page that takes us into the bedroom of a young boy, we read "Sun, kiss the faces / Of a child and a pup / With a gentle touch, tickle, / So they both wake up. A nice book to share with young children.
Mary Harris Veeder
"Sun kiss the faces / Of a child and a pup; / With a gentle touch, tickle, / So they both wake up." In rhyming text, Marzollo describes the earth's movement--its turning toward the sun, then turning away and back again--capturing the daily cycle in the forest, on the farm, and in the life of a young boy and his puppy. Regan's memorable illustrations have an even stronger effect than the words. Accomplished in a vernal palette of soft greens and golds, they convey a sense of a peaceful, ordered world in which the young and the small are taken care of and surrounded by soft hills and sunshine.
