Poems about the sun—rising, shining, setting—and about the moon and stars comprise this soothing picture book anthology. A thoughtful arrangement begins with sun poems and moves on to poems about the night sky, with Ashley Bryan’s lovely “Song” seamlessly marking the transition: “Sing to the sun / It will listen / And warm your words … Sing to the moon / It will listen / And soothe your cares…” Exquisite shades of gold, indigo, and violet distinguish the illustrations and make a striking visual backdrop for the words of this comforting and quietly inspired collection. (Ages 4–8)
