"What does the sky say?" a child asks.
What does it say on a winter day, or on a
Saturday night, or when the rain beats on its chest,
or its mouth is full of moon?
A child watches the sky in changing seasons and in all kinds of weather and learns to listen to its voice.
In "What Does the Sky Say? author Nancy White Carlstrom's imaginative and poetic text encourages all readers, both very young and older, to wake up to and participate in the opportunities for joy and learning each day offers. And Tim Ladwig's extraordinary illustrations perfectly capture the moods of weather and season, the magic of childhood, and our deep connection to all creation and its Creator.
About the Author
Nancy White Carlstrom is the author of more than 50 books for children, including the popular Jesse Bear books (Simon & Schuster) and the best-selling Does God Know How to Tie Shoes? (Eerdmans). Ms. Carlstrom graduated with a degree in education from Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois. She taught first and second grade students in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Gloucester, Massachusetts. She was also involved with short-term mission projects in West Africa, the West Indies, and Mexico. The former owner/manager of a bookstore, Nancy White Carlstrom now lives with her family in Seattle, Washington.
K-Gr 3-In this poetically written picture book, Carlstrom continues the spiritual theme that she began in Does God Know How to Tie Shoes? (Eerdmans, 1993). A little girl looks to the sky for answers about the natural world. The sky reminds her to look outside at the snow, to dance in the sunset, to smile at the sunshine after the rain, to sing in the wind, and to "Listen to this bright shining earth!" Ladwig's watercolor illustrations are breathtaking, realistic portrayals of a child full of love for life. Each picture is infused with a sense of joy and glory. While the religious foundation of the book is ambiguous, Psalm 19:1-4a, listed on the last page of the book, helps readers to see the author's inspiration: "-the skies proclaim the work of God's hands-."-Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
"A joyous prose poem whose swirling, light-drenched illustrations ... complement the text's sense of wonder."
