My Review: The rhyming story shows the joy on a child’s face when they wake up in the morning to see the Sun outside their window. Its another day for them to come out and play with their friends. Splash and play in the puddles, looking cool by dressing up looking like a movie star, skipping, playing peek-a-boo. And when the weather is hot, they head to the pool to cool off. They find time to sit outside to have lunch. And when the Sun starts to slide down, they look forward to seeing the Moon.

While the Moon smile on the earth giving it light at night. The kids watch as the lightning bugs blink off and on like flashlights and crickets chirping. They know its time for bed when the Moon is out. Time for them to be thankful to God for all that happened throughout their day.

These are great books from the author who writes about the age appropriate biblical concepts that are woven around the recurring theme of how God loves and watches over us.  These books makes a perfect bedtime story for young kids. The illustrator captured each scene wonderfully with bold and bright colors. A must for your home library for kids.

  1. This book is perfect for my gyoungest grandson.He’s been asking lately why it’s light when he wakes and dark at night. They went over the scientific explanation and this would bring God into it so he understands. Thanks for the review Ella.
