Follow the Sun

How the Sun Got to Coco’s House, by Bob Graham; Candlewick Press, $17.99, 40 pages, ages 3-6.

Every day the sun rises across the globe, and in his latest picture book, Bob Graham tracks it across frozen forests, vast desserts, remote mountainside villages and bustling city streets until it bursts through little Coco’s bedroom window. Graham’s watercolors create a world awash in welcoming rays of sunlight (though every corner of Graham’s world appears to be covered in snow), and with perfect cadence illustrates how each sunrise is a shared gift that every creature on earth enjoys. A lovely read-aloud for young children that gently introduces the idea of a global community.
