Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A poetic book about shadows. A child describes his shadow. The illustrations vary from different cultures.
This is a very cute book that would be great for a younger audience. The illustrations were awesome. This book is about a young boy who refers to a shadow almost as if they are a person, coming out during the day but lazy and sleeps at night. You could use this to talk about shadows and how they are made and when the sun sets were a shadow goes.
