ONE SUN: A Book of Terse Verse

Email this review


A day at the beach is celebrated in 14 descriptive, rhymed pairs of words accompanied by beautifully composed color photos of four assorted small children and close-ups of things they do and see. A ""Wet pet"" emerging from the surf or ""Lone stone"" poised at its edge; a ""Scoop group"" (two kids with trowels) or ""Tan man"" (lifeguard) who shares his ""Neat seat"" with a young admirer--each provides a glimpse of cheerful activity. A fine concept book that should inspire children to make up their own ""terse verse.
