GREETINGS, SUN by Phillis Gershator

GREETINGS, SUN

Age Range: 3 - 6

KIRKUS REVIEW

 Toddlers will delight in this cheerful, colorful rhyme that is easy to remember and easy to chant: ``The stars are hiding,/all but one./Good morning, good morning,/good morning, sun./Greetings, sun./Greetings, breeze./Greeting, toes./Greetings, knees.'' The couplets celebrate all aspects of daily life, from rituals to body parts, meals, school, and family. While the rhymes can become tongue-tangling, the appealing illustrations never falter. Saint James extends the rhyme with her distinctive paintings that turn abstract, flat shapes into expressive, gesticulating people set against solid backgrounds in complementary colors. Action, emotion, and story are conveyed through thoughtful compositions and a grand use of vivid color. (Picture book. 3-6)
