More Than SunnyFeatured
Is there anything better than a sunny day?
How about a day that’s sunny . . . and birdy?
Or breezy and buzzy?
Blue and wishy?
Cloudy and fishy?
In this enchanting, buoyant picture-book debut from Shelley Johannes, a pair of siblings find the bright side during all the seasons of a year—bringing optimism, curiosity, and wonder to each situation they encounter, no matter the weather.
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.
