Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This tall, narrow picture book relates what could be a single day in the life of a family through a sequence of pages focused not on the figures, but on the sky above them. A "blue sky" changes to a "storm sky," "rainbow sky," "sunset sky," etc., and finally a "dream sky" as the family enjoys a trip to the beach and the progression of the day from morning to night. On the bottom of each spread, a child with wild, curly hair and a stuffed monkey companion dreamily gazeat the heavenly changes taking place. The only text is the two-word description of each skyscape, cleverly drawn in Wood's vibrant pastel illustrations. Color tones range from cool blues, purples, and grays to fiery yellows and oranges depending on the time of day depicted, while figures appear in everything from full-color renderings to shadowy silhouettes. With its simple text and large imagery, this book is an excellent choice for storytimes. Suggest it also to preschool teachers seeking materials for weather, time, or nature units.Jayne Damron, Farmington Community Library, MI, School Library Journal - February 2012.

Riassunto: Bestselling author/illustrator Audrey Wood uses simple words and stunning art to celebrate the ever-changing sky.
In Audrey Wood's bright, new concept book, a child and his family experience the fun of a sunny-sky day at the beach, then the electricity of a thunder-storm sky, and finally the magical delight of a rainbow sky. After the night sky fills up with stars, readers will be soothed by the pleasure of wishing on a star.
Using only two words per page-"Blue Sky" "Cloud Sky" "Storm Sky"-Wood's enthusiastic playfulness will encourage young readers to make up their own simple descriptions of the sky above.
Years ago, a teacher told Audrey how rarely her young students looked up. She asked them to begin watching the sky every day and keeping sky journals. They loved it! And soon that teacher saw great improvement in their learning, observing, and test-taking skills.
Beautiful, joyful, and educational, BLUE SKY invites us all to be creative in the way we engage with the world--all the ingredients that have made Audrey Wood's books popular and timeless among readers young and old.
