Under the Sun

Ellen Kandoian, Author Dodd Mead $11.95 (30p) ISBN 978-0-396-09059-5
Kandoian offers an eloquent answer to a child's oft-asked question, ""Where does the sun go when I go to bed?'' She traces the sun's journey from Molly's bedroom window to the Mississippi River where a boy watches it from a houseboat, to Japan where a girl watches it from her garden, to the Mongolian Desert where a camel watches it set behind the dunes, to a town in Russia where a little boy may be wondering, ``Where does the sun go when I go to bed?'' and all the way back to Molly's other bedroom window, where it will nudge her awake. Soft watercolors handsomely transport readers along the sun's path. A postscript describes the scientific explanation for the sun's behavior and suggests an experiment that readers can try. Ages 4-8.
