My Review:

When the Sun Met the Moon is a short and pleasant read, featuring rhyming text, artful illustration, and heartwarming messages. As a huge fan of the Sun, my little one used to ask me why the Sun has to disappear at night. I explained to him that the Sun would be too tired to work around the clock, so the Moon works the night shift to let the Sun rest and recharge. But the Sun still lends part of its light to the Moon during its sleep. Interestingly, this book seems to confirm my explanation somewhat, while the relationship between the Sun and the Moon is viewed through the lens of love and romance. The Sun has to work non-stop before he meets the Moon. Whenever he goes on vacation, the Earth goes into complete darkness. Things start to change when the Sun finally finds the love of his life.

It was love at first sight
And the rest was history
The Moon was the keeper of his night
And the Sun her golden key.

The illustrations of the book are truly impressive. Using vibrant and contrasting colors, they bring out the beauty of the Universe. My favorite scene is when the Sun and Moon gets married, with all the stars showering down around them. I love that the story shows how the Sun and Moon complements and supports each other through their relationship. This is when one plus one is greater than two. My son loves reading the story, although I doubt if he gets all the underlying messages. But I'm sure they will get through over time. What matters most is that the book is a fun read that provides a loving way to think about how the Universe works.
