Bob Graham does a wonderful job in making something so simple and real, alive. He begins the book by explaining that the sun had to start from somewhere, so where? The book shows how the sun travelled through various parts of the world until it reaches Coco's room. Whether it was lighting the way for a fishing boat, catching the eye of a great whale, "making shadows on the snow and in Jung Su's footsteps”, it was a real joy. Finally, when it gets to Coco’s room, we see how the sun is there on all parts of his house. Highly recommended book for young readers! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763681091, Hardcover)

Follow the journey of the sun across the world from a whale’s eye to a little girl’s window in Bob Graham’s tender, transcendent story.

While Coco sleeps far away, the sun creeps over a hill and skids across the water, touching a fisherman’s cap. It heads out over frozen forests, making shadows in a child’s footprints, and balances on an airplane’s wing for a little boy to see. The sun crosses cities and countrysides, wakes furry creatures, makes a desert rainbow, and barges into Coco’s room to follow her through a day of play. With an eye for capturing small moments of shared experience, Bob Graham illuminates the natural wonder that comes with every new day.

The sun makes its journey across the world to Coco's house to wake her up and follow her through another day.
