    Huge disappointment I loved Becker s trilogy of wordless books, but this is just dreadful trite text and a gimmick that adds nothing the emperor has no clothes.

    I was excited to receive a review copy of this book based on the book trailer, but now that I have it in hand, I have to admit to being underwhelmed The gimmick is fun at first glance My kids wanted to hold the book up to the window and see the light shine through the colored circles It was neat to see the way the images in the center of each page seemed to pop out, and we enjoyed seeing the shadow of the cut outs on the front cover against our living room floor After doing all of that just I was excited to receive a review copy of this book based on the book trailer, but now that I have it in hand, I have to admit to being underwhelmed The gimmick is fun at first glance My kids wanted to hold the book up to the window and see the light shine through the colored circles It was neat to see the way the images in the center of each page seemed to pop out, and we enjoyed seeing the shadow of the cut outs on...

    MY THOUGHTS I received this book in exchange for my honest review.I must confess that when this book came into my office, my husband and I played with it by holding it up to the window to appreciate the colours better, although, it wasn t really necessary The colours in the die cuts was beautiful with or without the light from the window We just wanted to play with the book.It is so beautiful in its simplicity The extra ordinary design tells a story of natural beauty in all the things around MY THOUGHTS I received this book in exchange for my honest review.I must confess that when this book came into my office, my husband and I played with it by holding it up to the window to appreciate the colours better, although, it wasn t really necessary The colours in the die cuts was beautiful with or without the light from the window We just wanted to play with the book.It is so beautiful in its simplicity The extra ordinary design tells a story of natural beauty in all the things around us and especially in ourselves Geared for ages 4 to 8, I think just for the art value and ingenuity of design, this book would be great for other ages like curious adults even It now sits like a work of art on m...

    I won this book on a Goodreads giveaway Love how cute and simple this book was Kids would really love the color and the cutouts were great looking Also how you can interact with the different pages as you read to them and put it up against the lamp or sun.

    The use of cutouts and color make the entire composition of this book a work of art.

    This rather unusual picture is all about the power of light and its connection to life The beauty of the simple text highlights the way sunlight brings dawn, which touches water, which rains and waters the wheat and feeds the leaves Eventually the light touches you and me connecting all living things What makes the book extra special is the use of die cuts and colored plastic to highlight the various colors that the light brings to life The book needs to be held up to the light to be fully a This rather unusual picture is all about the power of light and it s connection to life The beauty of the simple text highlights the way sunlight brings dawn, which touches water, which rains and waters the wheat and feeds the leaves Eventually the light touches you and me connecting all living things What makes the book extra specia...

    Caldecott Honor winner Becker has created his first board book and what a beauty it is The book almost glows with light and comes fully alive when raised toward the sun or a lamp where the colored circles shine As the pages turn, light is celebrated The way that it warms land, sips the sea, makes the rain, makes crops grow, and lights the moon Particularly though, the light in each person is celebrated.This board book is wonderfully simple and exceptionally designed As pages turn, the prima Caldecott Honor winner Becker has created his first board book and what a beauty it is The book almost glows with light and comes fully alive when raised toward the sun or a lamp where the colored circles shine As the pages turn, light is celebrated The way that it warms land, sips the sea, makes the rain, makes crops grow, and lights the moon Particular...
