Description

A joyful celebration of our daily companion, the sun, as it shines around the world.

“If I were the sun, I would sing a gentle morning song to wake my slumbering friends.” So begins this fresh and colorful collaboration between author Patricia Storms and illustrator Milan Pavlović, the creative team behind 2019’s beloved bedtime story, Moon Wishes.

Join the sun in this gentle imagining of its travels across the sky, lighting up our gloomiest days, celebrating a bountiful harvest, and delighting in the diversity of life around the world. 

Milan Pavlović’s vibrant watercolor illustrations complement Patricia Storm’s jubilant text. Young readers will be warmed by the sun’s wishes as they spread through the story, inspiring curiosity, gratitude, and the irresistible urge to step outside!
