A gentle and poetic board book about weather systems across the world. Young readers will enjoy meeting children from around the globe and experiencing the phenomena of the sky as each child thanks Mother Earth for bringing the sun, wind, rain, snow, lightning and thunder to them. Magical illustrations enhance evocative text in a delightful blend of cultural diversity, geography, science, rich language and gratitude.

The sun is a shine, that wakens the day, sparkles the dew, makes everything new. Miigwetch, merci, golden Sun. Thank you, thank you, shining one.

CM: Canadian Review of Materials

School Library Journal
“A great introduction to explaining common experiences to children regardless of where they live.”
