A really cute book for Solstice! My kids loved the book, great colors and what child doesn't love animal stories. We made the bread from the recipe provided and I found it simple for me and the kids to shape the sun, bake and eat. Delicious!

I recently purchased this book for work to use for a Winter Solstice program. Last night, I was finally able to read it to a group of children aged three to seven. The story is so sweet and the illustrations whimsical. The children loved the rhyming text. I recommend this book and look forward to discovering more of Elisa Kleven's other stories.

This book is just a wonderful story of a solution to unhappiness, frustration, due to a difficult situation. I make bread and have made the bread in this shape so many times and shared it! Each time I shared it, I could feel the love and the expression of thankfulness, peace, comfort, and joy! What wonderful ideas and feelings to have in this world. I did use a different bread recipe, but the concept is still the same, sharing the Sun with all it's cheerfulness, shedding light on everyone and everything, eradicating darkness and gloom, with all of us being reflections of the Sun. Beaming. I use this book to share with others the love of baking bread. We do it in groups, which have included elderly and a 2 yr old with her mother. While mixing the dough, she remarked with a big smile, "Look! Mommy. I'm cookin!" All of our eyes will filled with joy, and a little tear of happiness. Thank you for writing and illustrating this.

Here's another book that I purchased because I loved the cover art. (I wish we had a poster with that illustration on it!) There is something very cheerful about the smiling Sun and a ring of happy animals celebrating it. This is a beautiful, "feel good" book inside and out, in both text and illustration, in message. I was surprised to discover that the back cover had a recipe for Sun Bread, which I am tempted to try--even with my limited cooking abilities! LOL I thought the recipe note was brilliant and ever so funny: "This bread, alas, won't make you fly. But it is heavenly--light and high!" Could happiness be as simple as a warm loaf of good bread? :D

I like the book's message on how one really should take responsibility for one's own happiness as the little baker does in this tale. This book is worth sharing and reading aloud.

I have become a huge fan of Elisa Kleven's work, and I recommend this book as a remedy for rain and / or wintry days, for family time, and for in-school story time. Another great story is "The Lion and the Little Red Bird."

This is a delightful story, beautifully illustrated, and my children love it. We have started the tradition of reading this story on the winter solstice and making the sun bread recipe at the back of the book. It isn't the most delicious bread, but it puffs up impressively and it's a fun project for the kids.
Sweet book with an imaginary story and great recipe. I chose to make the bread with the four year old I nanny. We had a blast and enjoyed the bread. The illustrations pull you into the story and keep little children's attention. The magical aspect to the story makes it fun and exciting.
