In this award-winning wordless picture book, young ones follow a little girl as she goes throughout her day. Charming illustrations show the first rays of morning light shining into the little girl’s bedroom, waking her up. She goes about her morning routine and watches as her parents do the same. She eats cereal, climbs in bed with mom and dad as they read the paper and drink coffee, brushes her teeth, gets dressed, and goes out the door ready for school. Children enjoy providing their own commentary and comparing their personal routines to hers.

Comments about Sunshine:
Wonderful book for pre-readers, perfect to get them to interact with books before print. Even though written in the 80s - with some things not really relevant like Dad in bed reading the newspaper - the theme is universal. Lovely parents too, good examples.
I can't recommend this book highly enough. Omerod has Moonlight too in the same series, a marvellous book also.
In this wordless tale, a girl wakes up as sunlight floods her room, goes about her morning routine and watches as her parents do the same. Ages 4-8. (May)
