Light is used by all people in celebration. It brings a sense of well being and happiness.

Young children like the light, they enjoy playing in sunshine, discovering the colors that exist in light, and often seek for the comfort of light at night.

Pre-Story Discussion

The Way to Start a Day, by Byrd Baylor & Peter Parnall (Illustrator)
This lovely Caldecott Honor book shows how people around the world start the day and celebrate the sunrise.

The Sun Is My Favorite Star, by Frank Asch
There are many stars in the galaxy. But only the sun wakes us in the morning, helps us to grow, plays hide-and-seek behind the clouds, and paints pretty pictures in the evening sky. Frank Asch's gentle text and vivid illustrations celebrate the unique and wondrous qualities of our favorite and most powerful star.

Sun Bread, by Elisa Kleven
The wind is whooshing, the snow is whirling, the rain is streaming, and everyone misses the sun. The baker misses it so much that she mixes some dough, then kneads and shapes it into a warm, round, golden sun bread. When the animals eat it, they not only stop grumbling, they begin to rise! Birds and beasts join in a joyous celebration that wakes up the real sun, who takes part in the feast and beams back down on the world continuing the work the sun bread started.
