Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1This brief, poetic, circular tale follows a boy throughout the course of his active day. From the early morning when the shining sun wakes him until the "Moon shines on my pillow, and says good night to me," the out-of-doors beckons and his summertime adventures are recorded. The full-color, full-page oil or acrylic illustrations evoke a serene and beautiful seaside setting. They are realistically rendered, and background details add to the spare text. Beginning readers will appreciate the large-type print and repetition, although some of the vocabulary (fireflies, among, mountains) may be challenging. Sunshine, Moonshine will also make a gentle bedtime story for toddlers and preschoolers.Sharon R. Pearce, San Antonio Public Library, TX

    Early Reader

    I bought this book for my daughter when she was learning to read in Kindergarten. It was the first book she read outloud. Since then it has been past down to my other daughter and now my 5 year old son. The words are easy and the story is fun. It's a special book for our family!
