Authors: Paul Paolilli and Dan Brewer

Illustrators: Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher

ISBN: 0142500100

Summary:

This story is an acronym story involving aspects of nature. It gives acronyms of things like the sun, trees, the moon, hummingbirds, and butterflies.

Response:

The language is this book is beautifully descriptive of each item the authors pick to describe. I especially like the way they talk about stars being silver seeds in the sky. Each line that correlates with a letter give a different description of the item and they are done in a particular view that most people know but never stop to think about.

Classroom Connection:

When you introduce acronyms to students this would be a good book to read. Since everything is written in acronym form and it is done in a very descriptive way, it gives students a very good example of what they should be like. It would also be a good book to read just during storytime because it is very relaxing and has beautiful language that appeals to children.
