Sunrise, Moonrise

Sunrise, Moonrise

Day turns into night, and some animals drift to sleep while others spring to life in this beautiful high-contrast board book.This beautifully simple board book with bold artwork and lyrical text 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.

Your baby's developing eyes see best when there are strong contrasting colors. Raising Readers liked how Maine artist Betsy Thompson used a thick black line to surround her colors, allowing the animals to take shape for your child.

The high contrast images of Maine animals would be enough reason to share this book with you, but her words also make gentle sounds and rhymes. Use this book to slow down the pace of your day and to talk about the animals in the trees around your house. The more you read and talk with your child, the stronger and smarter he or she will become.
