Beautiful drawings and words.
My 4.5 year old loves to read this book over and over and so do I. I'm the type of parent who believes every moment should be a teaching moment and this book fits the bill. At the same time it's a wonderful bedtime story that guides the child through the day.

One of my favorite features is how the sun's position on the pages moves from low at dawn, to high and center at noon, and back down to low on the opposing page at dusk. The cloud's morph to join into the theme on some pages. At first I would read the book and my child would read the # before the "o'clock' (written as a numeral), later he would read the whole phrase, "8 o'clock in the morning" while I finished the sentence. Now he reads it all. He learned the difference between "_ o'clock in the morning", "_o'clock noon", "_ o'clock in the afternoon", and "_ o'clock in the evening".

Another aspect I love is the continuity from page to page. For example the person bicycling on one page is seen painting atop a hill in the next.

Most of all I ADORE the illustrations! The are absolutely gorgeous. I've used the book as a model for practicing colored pencil drawing with 8 year olds.

Buy it! or if you can't, get it from your local library. We checked ours out several times in a row!
