With a wondrously simple die-cut book, the Caldecott Honor–winning creator of the Journey trilogy brings his talents further into the light.
This is the light that brings the day. Open this beautiful book to find a graphic yellow sun surrounded by a halo of bright die-cut circles. Now hold the page up to the light and enjoy the transformation as the colors in those circles glow. In an elegant, sparely narrated ode to the phenomenon of light, Aaron Becker follows as light reflects off the earth to warm our faces, draws up the sea to make the rain, feeds all the things that grow, and helps to create all the brilliant wonders of the world, including ourselves.
- A poetic and stunningly luminous prayer of thanks to Mother Earth, which people of any age can appreciate.
- A celebration of the light that lives within each and every one of us, which should appeal to people of many faiths, as well as agnostics and atheists.
- For those who love the books of Herve Tullet, who collect books as art, who are looking for books of thanks-giving that are not necessarily rooted in the Judeo-Christian tradition.
