SUNLIGHT by Sally Cartwright


Email this review


A dose of sunlight comparable in strength to Cartwright's watered down Water Is Wet (KR, 1973). Here Hafner's rose and gold pastels remind us that sunshine is indeed beautiful while children are told to view it through windowglass, ice cubes and soap bubbles, shining on dew, reflected from mirrors and working on plants. A parent willing to carry through with the suggested activities might make this sufficiently lively, but sooner or later some child will stop being impressed by the warmth, rainbows and shadows and want to know why -- Cartwright doesn't provide a glimmer of an answer.
