The little boy couldn't believe his eyes when he woke up one morning and didn't see the sun soaring in the sky. He began to wonder if the sun sank because it got heavy. He thought of other possibilities like maybe the sun stopped to talk to the moon or got lost or took sick leave or floated away like a balloon. Suddenly the boy realized the sun must be still sleeping and he had to wake up the sun. No one around him knew how to wake up the sun. The little boy thought of many things, like taking a plane and flying to the stars or joining the astronauts when they head to Mars so that he could wake up the sun. Will he finally be able to see the sun?

The Day The Sun Slept In by Heather Danielle is the adorable story of a little boy who wants to see the sun shining and keeps wondering why the sun is not there when he does not see it. The author's illustrations are as adorable as the little boy and the story, and will bring out the imaginative and creative side of readers. The images also breathe life into the characters and the scenes, making them vivid. It is a good story to read out in classrooms for read aloud and storytelling sessions because it will motivate and encourage children to be more imaginative and think outside the box. Stories like this are good for children to make them wonder and think differently.

I thoroughly enjoyed the complete book. The writing is very imaginative and will make little ones think. I feel that it will open the door to alot more wonders also. Heather has a brilliant imagination and really knows how to put it in words. I feel that her pictures also tell the story so that you know just what was meant.

Simply amazing art detail, and a story line and adult would even can't help but to stop, and drift in wonder for a moment,or two. All around a great read for the kids at bed time.
