Papa, Why Does the Sun Shine? earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval
Papa, Why Does the Sun Shine?, written and illustrated by Jeanne Styczinski, is a lovely counting book for children. When a young child asks Papa why the sun shines, each time posing a seemingly random theory, Papa responds, "no, that is not why the sun shines". From one sleepy moon, to ten fish going to school, the queries continue, until Papa provides a simply charming response that is sure to melt the hearts of readers both young and old.
This is a book which children are sure to enjoy again and again as they learn their numbers. Cheerful illustrations are perfectly paired with this happy little book of counting which is likely to be a favorite in home and school libraries as well as in classroom settings.
