NPM 2023 Day 27: SUN WISHES

I was astonished at how much I fell in love with this book.

0-SW coverSUN WISHES is a poem written by Patricia Storms that spans the entire book.  Each page explores a different wish of the speaker who would joyfully embrace being the sun: “If I were the sun, I would….” The illustrations by Milan Pavlovic are bright, bold, and such a distinctive color palette (it really is perfect for the sun!) that they make you pause to soak everything in.

I chose one just one of my favorite spreads to share, but trust me when I say that this is a book you should check out.  It’s sweet and joyful, but also gloriously composed in every way.  It’s a quiet stunner that I had to share.
