  • "This book is beautifully illustrated in that Eric Carle style. It's vibrant, dynamic and so much fun to read. It builds in excitement and fun as you continue adding more parts of the food cycle. I will definitely be sharing this with the children in my life. Though honestly I, as an adult, will probably read it once in a while just for fun!

    Este libro está bellamente ilustrado en el mismo estilo de Eric Carle. Es vibrante, dinámico y muy divertido de leer. Aumenta la emoción y la diversión a medida que continúa agregando más partes del ciclo alimentario. Definitivamente compartiré este libro con los niños en mi vida. Aunque, sinceramente, como adulta, ¡probablemente lo voy a leer de vez en cuando solo para divertirme!"

    "I really enjoyed this book. I am not very proficient in Spanish, but was able to read and understand the story. I liked that this book had pattern text that built on itself. This is great for struggling readers as it provides room for successful reading. I also liked the life cycle science concept because it makes this book a perfect candidate for teaching an integrated lesson in the classroom."

    "★★★★★ This adorable book would be the perfect companion for parents and their young children on a nature walk together.... If you are looking for an irresistible book to give children as a gift, with an educational, meaningful flavor, definitely choose This is the Sun by Elizabeth Everett. A hardcover edition would be a treasure for any bookshelf."


    —Tammy Ruggles, Reader Views



    "This Is the Sun does an extraordinary job of capturing nature's splendor and impressing upon young readers the interconnectedness of all living things. The artwork is nothing short of dazzling, as is the way each new page's words and images build on those introduced earlier. This playful, rhythmic approach uses repetition to marvelous effect in expressing both the interdependence of our planet's many species and an implied fragility. Kids, recognizing that they themselves are an undeniable part of this enjoyably revealed grandeur, respond with wonder and delight!"
