MORE THAN SUNNY is a sweet picture book about siblings, seasons, and childhood fun. The story features two siblings who are playing and having fun together throughout the seasons. Each page features a short phrase of two words, beginning with the big sister's "It's sunny!" and the younger brother's reply of "And early." Much of the book is told through the colorful illustrations that show the siblings playing together, and later, also playing with their parents.

What I loved: This is a book full of familial love and joy of play. The illustrations are full of adorable characters, fun details, and all the delight of play during different seasons. With a bit of a sketch-like quality, plenty of details, and bright colors, this is a fun book to look through. I love the focus on family and all the fun of playing together. Different family members get different colored speech words, though this may go over little one's heads. The rhyming, brief phrases make this work for toddlers through young elementary school aged readers.

Final verdict: A charming celebration of family and play, MORE THAN SUNNY is a sweet picture book filled with bright colors and love throughout the seasons.
