"Greetings, sun," cry the two children at the start of the day. And, true to the preschooler's delight in the familiar, they go on and on, happily: "greetings, breeze. Greeting, toes. Greetings, knees." The setting is an island in the Caribbean, but the sounds and joyful illustrations will strike chords in many a small sharer, no matter where in the world they find themselves. "Greetings toast. Greetings, jelly. Greetings, butter. Greetings, belly." There is much to greet on the walk to school, in school, on the way home, through family supper, and even at bedtime--"Greetings, moon. And now we're done... until it's time to greet the sun." Here is a book that welcomes a child's participation, on a lap or in a story hour. The art has a big-hearted energy that will carry to the farthest corner of a room, or even across a stretch of warm sand beneath the palms, by the sea, and under a sunny sky.
