Come Back Dear Sun by Geena Bean
When the sun disappears for a long time, curious Kaylee cannot wait to have the sunshine back. Her imaginative plan unfolds like only an eight year old can conceive, and the wonder and smiles begin. She and her six year old sister, Mattie, along with their two friends, Fan and Lilly, plan an adventurous sleepover in an attempt to coax the sun into shining again. In a very imaginative way, they talk to the moon only to discover that the moon is very tired due to working overtime during the sun's absence.
Follow Kaylee and her friends on their energetic quest to learn why the sun has disappeared and where it has gone. The insightful message of this story impresses both parents and children alike in order to grow appreciation of the world around us. (taken from the back of the book)
This is a very cute book. The pictures are dark for the most part, although that doesn't deter from the story. It also makes sense since the story is about the sun disappearing. The story is easy to read. It reads like a poem. The pictures lend very well to the story as they relate the story in picture form. I think this book is great for the 3-7 age group.
