The sun is up and it is morning. It is time to start a new day and to rejoice!  The sun shines “on rocky islands, where seal pups doze,” and now they wake up and “clap for joy.” In a meadow “honey bees drone” in their hives, but when they see that the sun is up, they get up and get to work “among the flowers.”

With it’s lyrical sing-songy text and its sunny pencil and watercolor illustrations, this board book is perfect for sleepy morning story times.
