Short, sweet, and uplifting. Those are the first words which spring to mind about Who Will Hug the Sun by Ey Wade. This informative, and somewhat touching little book which will surely engage any child and I am delighted to able to feature it this week. You will find my full review below.

My Review of Who Will Hug the Sun

I love books from which a child can take something away with them, and this one offers just that.  A little girl called Mhia wants to hug the sun and finds herself listening to her mother’s tale of how the sun had wanted a hug too, and how difficult it had been for her to get one. The narrative cleverly gets around to explaining a total solar eclipse in ways little ones can easily understand.  A valuable and simple snippet of science for the young! The sketches within the book are nicely executed and go well with the story. The story itself is endearing and actually quite moving and, as Mhia says, everyone needs a hug! This is a well-written and enjoyable book which I would recommend to parents as a read aloud book for their younger children.
