The Sun Shines

Story and Picture Book

The Sun Shines has two parts.

The first presents the story with images and supports young readers in its choice of typeface and presentation.

The pictures invite thought and dialog about the narrative as it unfolds.

As I read the second section of The Sun Shines, now in its third edition, the words flow differently as compared with when I read the story with images.

With the written text I experience words more by their shape and sound, in mind or air, and through my imagination.

Perhaps our need to nurture lays at the heart of listening to, reading, and making stories. Nurturing ourselves, and one another.

My hope is that whatever your age, you find something to enjoy as The Sun Shines.

Words become within us. Saying words out loud, repeating them, even whispering them, transforms them.
