Why Sunbelievable Delights Children of all Ages
by David Broughton, Contributor to the Stories for Children Book Review, Sacramento/San Francisco Book Review, and American Chronicle Book Reviews.
The illustrations in Sunbelievable use digital photo collage to create a world full of vibrant color, bridging real-life images with an imaginative landscape full of wonder. Children love exploring the images for unexpected details that make the story alive.
The artwork is truly exceptional, a brilliant melding of art and photography. Each illustration projects an almost three-dimensional quality. The writing tells the story boldly through the imagination of two curious children, while the real message of the book—recognizing diversity in the world around us – is quite subtle. Printing is done in the USA by a company that makes sure it’s child safe and lead free. As a professional book reviewer, I see hundreds of children’s books a month; most I cannot in good conscience recommend on any level, but Sunbelievable surpasses all my benchmarks of a great children’s book.
