Well, Bob Graham has done it again. He has created a lovely, cozy, engaging picture book – this time about the sun’s travels on its way to spend the day with Coco in England. Can you describe its route??


— From How the Sun Got to Coco’s House


Follow the journey of the sun across the world from a whale's eye to a little girl's window in Bob Graham's tender, transcendent story.

While Coco sleeps far away, the sun creeps over a hill and skids across the water, touching a fisherman's cap. It heads out over frozen forests, making shadows in a child's footprints, and balances on an airplane's wing for a little boy to see. The sun crosses cities and countrysides, wakes furry creatures, makes a desert rainbow, and barges into Coco's room to follow her through a day of play. With an eye for capturing small moments of shared experience, Bob Graham illuminates the natural wonder that comes with every new day.
