Tafuri's fans will recognize the gray-and-black speckled hens from Early Morning in the Barn (1983), the marmalade cat from Junglewalk (1988), and even one of the sweet brown dogs from Who's Counting? (1986). From beautiful mixed-media artwork is fashioned an elegantly simple graphic demonstration of the neverending cycle of day and night.

It almost seems magical the way it works. I classify books as group books or lap books.

I think flipping the book over to read about the sun/moon fascinates our son. The comparison of what goes on in the daytime and nighttime stimulates imagining of what our "daytime" places are like at night.

Select Format: Hardcover. I think flipping the book over to read about the sun/moon fascinates our son. The book is short and simple, but sometimes that's what we want - especially when we want a short bedtime book! Overall, this book is pleasant and soothing, not spectacular but attractive, fun, and definitely worth reading. Keeps the interest of the Children!

This book by Nancy Tafuri was a creative way to show children what happens during the day and what happens during the night. The first part of the book is about what the sun sees. Every page about the sun happened to start with the words, "The Sun sees. The sun is shown in the sky. The second part of the book is about what the moon sees. Precious book using simple sentences and illustrations to tell the reader what the "Sun Sees" including, animals, bust streets, and children. The other side of the book is everything the "Moon Sees" in contrast to the sun. Empty streets and sleepy children.

A charming, brightly illustrated concept book in two parts shows the sun rising and the streets coming alive during the day while the other section shows the stars in the skies and the owls perched on their branches at night.

Great product! Thanks!

I love this book. We first encountered this at the public library, and had to have it for my daughter's home library. Beautiful, vivid illustrations. Simply language. My 18-month-old daughter and I enjoy this book. I love the format, too, where you flip the book over half way through to do the opposite point of view. There was a book "I am My Mommy / I am My Daddy" just like this that I loved when I was little, but couldn't find that one anywhere.

We have been reading this book at our public library for several years. The illustrations are big, bold, and beautiful. It has a unique feature - first you see what the sun sees and as the end of the day approaches - you close the book, flip it over vertically and then you see what the moon sees. It almost seems magical the way it works.

I classify books as group books or lap books. This one is an excellent example of a "read out loud to group" book. Because of the way it flips. It works equally well as a "lap" book. This is when you have the children sitting beside you and read.

I have a list of books that we use to read to children, especially when a volunteer doesn't show up and you have to do something on the fly. This book is one of those books.
This book was read in my class, by me to 4 and 5 year olds. They liked the large size and colorful pictures. When the book is over, just flip it over and find out what the moon sees. Two books in one! A great deal.
