If I Was the Sunshine

(2) PS Illustrated by Loren Long. This big, handsome picture book with a poetic text and lush full-bleed acrylic illustrations begins on a farm, with an adult and child walking toward the barn: "if I was the sunshine / and you were the day / I'd call you hello! // and you'd call me stay." Other spreads depict different animals in their habitats. A gentle meditation on connections in the natural world and in human experience, too.
