From Publishers Weekly:
Splendid watercolor panoramas and a rounded landscape representing the Earth's curve illustrate Gerstein's warmhearted, childlike view of the sun's journey across the sky. "At 5 o'clock in the morning / the sun comes up and begins the day,'' shows the sun nestled behind some hills next to a dark farmhouse. In the next line--"At 6 o'clock in the morning / chirping chicks pop out of eggs''--the sun is depicted as a golden chick, open-mouthed in anticipation of a new day. …At noon, construction workers take out their lunches, and the sun becomes a delicious deli sandwich. …Gerstein acrobatically balances between the land of imagination and the earthbound actions of people.
