School Library Journal - 06/01/2019 PreS-Gr 2—Sun is a star. A soccer star. He loves everything about soccer—the game, the goals, the cheers, but something is missing. He can't help but notice how happy his brother Pablo looks while spread out on the floor making art. Feeling inspired, Sun heads to the beach and remembers how much he used to love making art, too. As he admires the beautiful things that have washed ashore, Sun soon meets a fox who shows him how to trot, dive, find things, and most of all, reminds him how fun it is to create. Back at home, Sun digs right in at creating alongside his brother, and the result is simply magical. This companion to well-loved Moon is a fitting follow-up from author-illustrator Oliver and does not disappoint. VERDICT Simple text pairs perfectly with vibrant and colorful illustrations to tell the story of Sun, a boy who excels at soccer but also loves to create, and reminds us that there is more than one way to be a boy. A terrific storytime read-aloud or a one-on-one selection for a child struggling to find his or her bliss.—Elizabeth Blake, Brooklyn Public Library - Copyright 2019 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
