    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.

    Picture book artist Aaron Becker, creator of that marvelous trilogy of wordless tales Journey , Quest and Return as well as A Stone for Sascha , turns to interactive board books in this new title A simple but poetic text celebrates the power of light, and is paired with stylized illustrations Each spread here features a circle of cut outs in the cardboard page, with colored plastic letting the light through and simulating stained glass windows.After greatly enjoying all of the author s previous titles, I fully expected to take You Are Light to heart Unfortunately, although I did find the concept interesting, the end product left a little to be desired The colored windows were fun, but didn t have lasting appeal for me The narrative worked well, and although it was couched in poetic terms, it made sense until the end from a scientific perspective When, for instance, the sun sips the sea to make the rain, this is clearly a reference to ocean evaporation and the water cycle I really appreciated this aspect of the book, that it used non scientific language but was scientifically sound Alas, this approach was abandoned on the final page, when the narrat...

    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.

    It is such a joy to share the books reviewed here on Chat With Vera with a local library, a homeschool family, a neighbor, and especially a special Great grandbaby His dear mother has reviewed You Are Light for us after sharing it with this sweet little one Her review is especially pertinent as she is an artist and a superb professional photographer.We recently received this lovely book from a family member and I must say, the gift was perfectly timed It was the end of a long day and we were on the way home when our little one was getting fussy in his carseat I climbed into the back seat and pulled out this beautifully crafted book that describes color and light The book is a dynamic tool that changes when you look down upon it from above versus holding it up to the window to let the light shine through the little circular panes The welcome distraction became an exploration in the color wheel and will likely spark deeper conversations into the cycle of water, sun and their effects on the earth s environment when he s old enough to understand While the author stays rooted in the scientific explanati...

    First sentence This is the light that brings the dawn to warm the sky and hug the land It sips the sea to make the rain, which waters wheat to grow the grain.Premise plot Simple text, complicated design highlight a new age y message for little ones I m not one hundred percent sure of that last bit that s opinion not fact But regardless the text is simple and the design is complicated.My thoughts If the book did not end in an obscure, abstract, obviously vague, perhaps new age y way This light is you And you are light then perhaps I could overlook the strange, quirky nature of the book Sure, this book is a little out there but it s harmless It could provide entertainment for bored adults who are looking for a book to hold up to light windows There are worse ways to entertain yourself, right If only the text had stayed whimsicalbut it didn t.I foresee that there will be people who LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book and think it s super creative, incredibly profound, a piece of art in and of itself There will be people that, on the other hand, think it s way over rated and just a waste of time Then perhaps there will be a small handful of Christians who object to the content being pushed I fall into two of...

    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 once, however, we d pretty much exhausted what this book can offer The t...

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

  9. Edward Sullivan says:

    Beautiful and unqiue in its use of die cuts, this concept book can be appreciated by a wide range of ages.

    I was a bit underwhelmed, but this will definitely be useful in filling day care requests Children will also enjoy holding it up to the light to see the different colors However, the text seems a bit abstract and didn t do much for me.
