What does the Sky Say?

Every day offers opportunities to experience joy and learning. That's the lesson found in What Does the Sky Say? (Eerdmans, 2001).

Author Nancy White Carlstrom lets readers see the sky through the eyes of a little girl. As the seasons and weather change, she learns to listen to what the sky can teach us. For example, on a star-filled summer night, she learns: "With such a wide roof I give you, surely there is room for everyone to live in peace."

This is an easy-to-read story with a simple, yet descriptive, text. It's a good story for adults and children to read together, leaving time to discuss what can be learned and experienced in our everyday lives.

The book's beautiful art adds to the charm of this story. The colors are warm and inviting, and the pictures are big. You can easily imagine you're catching fireflies with the little girl or running through autumn leaves toward home.
