Read full description of the books:
Peter Parnall collaborated with Byrd Baylor on eight more books, two more of which he won Caldecott honors for, in addition to this one in 1979. I have been in love with his artwork for awhile, and owned another of his books as a kid, called "Apricot ABC." For his complete bibliography of illustrated books, see this website: http://www.parnall.pagebooks.net/. The author grew up in the Southwest and lives near the Arizona-Mexico border.
This book, written in free-verse poetry, is about sunrises and how many cultures all over the world worship and praise the sun. Cultures such as the cavemen, Ancient Egyptians, Native Americans, Peruvians and Africans are featured. It is about thanking the sun for bringing forth a new day by greeting it every morning. I found these lesson plans on the book (http://www.uniqueteachingresources.co...). As Seth D. Webb commented in this blogpost (http://radicalmontessori.blogspot.com...), "In the push for digital literacy we cannot forget and forgo the importance of children feeling the world around them. It is not enough to show; we must provide experiences for them to do: to touch, to smell, to listen, to taste, to be still and to know." And this book does just that. Highly recommended for ages 4-9, 5 stars.

She is at home with the southwestern desert cliffs and mesas, rocks and open skies. She is comforted by desert storms. The Tohono O’odham people, previously known as the Papagos, are her neighbors and close friends. She has focused many of her writings on the region’s landscape, peoples, and values. Through her books of rhythmic prose poetry, written primarily for children, she celebrates the beauty of nature and her own feelings of rapport with it.
Byrd has written many books for children.
Her books have been honored with many prestigious children’s book awards, including the Caldecott Award and the Texas Bluebonnet Award. All of her books are full of the places and the peoples that she knows. She thinks of these books as her own kind of private love songs to the place she calls home.
