Overview

Nursies When the Sun Shines is a godsend to parents of nursing toddlers, exhausted from late night wakings for milk. Beautiful watercolor illustrations and a sweet, lulling verse help young children understand the concept of night and day. Night time, the book explains, is for sleeping. "Nursies," on the other hand, happen when the sun shines. In Nursies, a toussle-haired toddler is snuggled up in bed with mom and dad, ready to go to sleep for the night, the family's grey striped cat snoozing soundly at their feet. When the toddler wakes at night for "nursies," mom shows her baby that it's dark outside, and assures baby that she'll have nursies when the sun shines. Later, with brilliant sun streaming through the window, the toddler knows it's time for nursies. The book closes with a heart-warming illustration of a nursing family: the toddler, nuzzled up to mama's breast, daddy kissing toddler's head, and even the family cat purring a love song. Nursies is a groundbreaking children's book, the first-ever to focus on night weaning. Its goal is to facilitate communication between parent and young child, thereby making the process of night weaning as gentle and easy as possible.

Nursies When the Sun Shines is available in Spanish under the title Lechita Al Amanecer.
