Summary

A sun. A flower. And a lion. With three visual motifs, three colors, and fewer than 200 words, renowned Caldecott Medalist and #1 New York Times-bestseller Kevin Henkes cracks open the wide world and the youngest child's endless imagination. This irresistible picture book is a must-have for every reader and every family.

On a warm morning, a little lion sleeps under a sun that shines so brightly, it looks like a flower. He dreams the flower is as big as the sun. He dreams the flower is a cookie. He lets his imagination soar.

Caldecott Medalist Kevin Henkes uses simple shapes, limited colors, and a pitch-perfect text to tell Lion's story in this transcendent picture book. Sun Flower Lion introduces emerging readers to short chapters, action verbs, and adjectives, while bright illustrations transform simple shapes into something magical.

Sun Flower Lion will shine at story time and bedtime and for young children just learning how to read on their own.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Masterfully employing brush and ink, with a striking color palette limited to yellow, black, white, and gray, Henkes creates a simple but thought-provoking story. Using panel illustrations, the book is divided into chapters, setting the pace of the narrative and helping the reader understand comparisons between items. The first chapter consists of two panels, both showing the sun, "as bright as a flower." Chapter two introduces the flower--composed of the same core shape and colors as the sun--while the text makes the first mention of the lion. Chapter three brings it all together, as a lion--whose head also bears the same design as the sun and flower--sniffs the flower and warms himself in the sunlight. In chapter four, the panels now have scalloped edges because the lion is dreaming, the curves again echoing the design of the lion's mane, the flower's petals, and the sun's rays. Chapter five begins the ending progression, and by chapter six, the lion is home with his family. He runs, eats, and goes to sleep surrounded by safety and love, which results in an image of pure happiness. A perfect book for storytime reading or family bedtime sharing, this is completely accessible for the youngest readers, while providing an intriguing visual and print literacy experience for older ones."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Simple words and repeating forms draw beginning readers into this iterative volume by Henkes (Summer Song). Its central visual element, a circle with a ruffled edge, could signify the sun, a flower, or a lion with a mane--and here, it's all three. Divided into six short chapters, the story's sentences relate the three objects to each other. First, readers meet the sun: "The sun is in the sky./ It is shining./ It is as bright as a flower." In chapter two, a ruffled circle appears with a stem and leaves; it's a bloom that "looks like a little lion." In chapter three, the motif forms the head of a stumpy feline ("He smells the flower./ He warms himself in the sun") who dreams, wakes, and runs home. Readers see the hill, but not the traveling lion ("Can you see him?/ No, you can't./ He is running too fast"). Yellow spreads convey warmth and light, while gray, hand-inked blades of grass cover the hill. Signlike artwork and straightforward text fit together as neatly as building blocks in this lighthearted reading exercise. Ages 4--8. (Sept.)"
