Marvel at the sky in this meditative die-cut book, a follow-up to You Are Light and My Favorite Color, from the Caldecott Honor–winning creator of the Journey trilogy.

Its dawn begins in darkness.
With hope we greet its light.

Within the pages of this elegant book is the entire sky. Lyrical text moves readers through the day, from dawn to dusk, while ink- and die-cut lines resembling stained glass arc across the pages like birds in flight. An encounter with the translucent, jewel-colored panes in this special board book offers a luminous reminder that, no matter the hour or the hue, we all dwell together under one magnificent sky.

ONE SKY is a clever board book poem that combines lyrical writing with unique artwork. Most pages in the book feature cut-outs with colored sheer plastic that can be held up to the light for children to play with.

What I loved: This is a lyrically written poem with a line on each page that talk about the majesty of the sky and sun from dawn to dusk. It is lovely to read but remains secondary to the design that wraps around each page and plays with color. The unique cut-outs and sheer colored plastic windows do really give children something new to explore, and they can create something fun with light and color. The simplicity of the book makes it one that would be easy for children to play with independently.

The poem is short with only a few words on each page, which makes the book move quickly. For that reason and the board book format, it will work well for a wide range of young readers, and toddlers can also get into playing with the colors and light.

Final verdict: ONE SKY is a lovely board book featuring lyrical writing and fun plays on color.
