Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Out Came the Sun is a collection of nursery rhymes, thoughtfully selected and beautifully illustrated by Heather Collins. The rhymes tell the comforting and familiar story of a child's day: waking up, washing and dressing, eating, playing indoors and outdoors, and going to sleep. Following a day from sun up to sun down, the rhymes were also chosen for their rhythms, patterns and sounds — to delight babies and toddlers, to make reading aloud fun and interactive for parents, and to encourage young children's engagement and response. Familiar rhymes such as Hickory, dickory, dock and I'm a little teapot gain a new meaning in illustrator Heather Collins's story. From cock robin's lively waking up to the man in the moon's fond goodnight, more than 40 nursery rhymes follow a cuddly animal family through their day. A feast for young eyes and ears, Out Came the Sun also encourages babies and toddlers to connect words, pictures and story — an essential first step in learning to read.

Review:

"Collins arranges 45 mostly familiar nursery rhymes in a sun-up to sundown romp starring a multi-species stuffed animal family, who made similar appearances in her Traditional Fairy Tales series of board books. After baby animals eagerly rouse her, a plush mother hen presides over the preparation of breakfast to 'pat-a-cake' and clean up to 'higglety, pigglety, pop,' wherein a droopy-eared puppy earns the otherwise even-tempered hen's ire by eating a mop. Then the group fans out over an idyllic town and countryside, and Collins adapts the rhymes in sometimes unexpected ways. 'One, two, buckle my shoe,' for instance, culminates in the building of a raft once sticks have been picked up and laid straight. Despite being put to bed, the animals head out for one last activity ('Boys and girls come out to play,/ The moon doth shine as bright as day'). Collins's watercolors display just enough verve and domestic humor to keep her subjects from turning twee; the mercurial, rambunctious pigs (who almost come to blows in 'Who made the pie?') are particularly vivid. Although this category is a crowded one, the manageable size and good-natured fun make this volume stand out. Ages 6 mos.-3 yrs." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

A unique collection of nursery rhymes that recounts the days of a large, cuddly animal family. The endearing, gentle world evoked by illustrator Heather Collins provides the perfect backdrop to introduce rhymes and language to the very young.
