Book Description

Come Back Dear Sun is a delightfully unique children’s book told in well-written rhyme and through beautiful illustrations. Young and old alike are sure to cherish this easy-flowing picture book with a memorable message. When the sun disappears for a long time, curious Kaylee cannot wait to have the sunshine back. Her imaginative plan unfolds like only an eight-year-old can conceive, and the wonder and smiles begin. She and her six-year-old sister, Mattie, along with their two friends, Fran and Lilly, plan an adventurous sleepover in an attempt to find out why the sun has disappeared. The children figure out a way to talk to the moon only to discover that the sun has left because of the lack of outdoor play. The insightful message of this story impresses both parents and children alike in order to grow appreciation of the world around us. Bean skillfully creates characters with whom children can easily relate and be inspired by. People will enjoy this wonderful, energetic children’s story with an everlasting message to remember. Parents remember childhood playtime memories as they resurface, and young listeners are enthralled with the thought-provoking questions of “What if?” Follow Kaylee and her friends on their energetic quest to bring back the sunshine to their otherwise gloomy days!

About the Author

In 2003, Geena Bean graduated from Rutgers University with an English degree. For the past ten years she has been in the nanny industry, working with children and journaling her experiences with them. She has observed that the age of technology, including television, video games and computers, has often stifled the creative imaginations of children and discouraged them from going outdoors to engage in innovative free play. Her interaction with children encourages them to use imaginative play outdoors, which was the norm years ago before the age of advanced technologies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Satisfied Customer!!!! February 22, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was excited to hear about this book and couldn't wait to buy it. My niece is the author and her sister is the illustrator. Once I received the book and I read it I loved the concept a lot. Today's kids do not like to go out and play any more, they would rather stay in the house watching t.v. or play video games. Most children do not like to read a book either. I have a 9 year old granddaughter and I would like for her to start reading more so I started her own little library of books. Maybe after this book gets into more stores and read to more children there will be more playing out doors and there will be more sunshine!!!!! Best of luck Gina!!!!!

This may be the best, most impressive children's book I've ever read. I believe it is an important book that should be read by children...and adults alike! The latter even more so! Bean has taken an important topic that I, too, am concerned about and has created, with the help of Cheri Webber, a beautifully told contemporary fairy tale of what could happen in today's world... As with most fairy tales, the moral of the story is so very, very important!

Have you ever considered what it would be like to not have the sun providing us light and all its loving benefits? Well, one day the sun was talking to the moon and told him how unhappy she was. You see, nobody was ever coming out to play and work in the sun anymore. She was lonely and feeling unappreciated! So she had decided to move somewhere else to see if the people would come out to be with her wherever she wound up...

Fortunately she had at least told the moon about her feelings...

Because there was one little girl that was missing the sun so much! Sure she loved the moon just as much as the sun, but she had always loved to be outside during the day, having the sun help her enjoy the day. Many of her friends were always staying inside...playing stupid games or watching television. She not only had more fun outside, but knew from her parents that it was very important for them to run around playing games, keeping their growing bodies active. Kids today were becoming what they even called "couch potatoes."

But Kaylie wasn't the type to continue to wait for the sun, even though she believed her Dad when hhe said the sun would be back. She had an idea, though, that just might work and help bring the beautiful sun back!

5.0 out of 5 stars FIVE GOLDEN SUNSHINES FOR OUR WONDERFUL SUN September 21, 2014
Format:Paperback
Come Back Dear Sun: Geena Bean
Your friends, Kaylee, Mattie, Lilly and Fran Author: Geena Bean
Illustrated by: Cheri Webber

What would you do if every time you looked outside it was dark? What would you do if the morning sky looked sad, gloomy and dark? What would you do if the sun decided to move to a new location because the children of the world forgot why she was there and all of the wonderful and special things she does for everyone? Poor Kaylee, she is really upset. Telling her father that she wishes for the sun to come is just the start of what his smart and creative little girl does in order to try and bring back the sun. But, all of the reassurance in the world does not make Kaylee feel any better and instead of giving up she decides to create a plan to hopefully get the sun to come back. But, she cannot do it alone and needs the help of her sister, a bow and arrow and two cups. For anyone that has ever played telephone using two cups to talk you know that Kaylee’s idea just might work. But, first her sister weighs in with her thoughts but Kaylee won’t stop until she gets the beautiful sun with her magnificent rays to shine again.

When you look at the colorful yet nighttime pictures you can see the moon high up in the sky trying to provide enough light in the night sky. But, the poor moon is up and out and Kaylee needs to invite Lilly and Fran to be taking part in this important task.

Polite, respectful and making sure she has her mother’s permission she and her friends decide to set up camp and wait for the right time to execute their “master plan.” Just how do you get the attention of the Moon? What do they do in order to speak to him? Well when you see how they shoot the bow and arrow and attach a rope with the two cups you’ll find out.

REVIEW

A couple of things that caught me right off were the colorful illustrations, the rhyming words that were well written. Another thing I liked is the glossy cover of which little finger prints can be wiped off.

The author brings out a good point through her book. Children of today's age, don't want to play outside and I myself see that they don't use their imaginations to make up games and things to do. Everything is so technical. That is another reason that I find this book so enchanting. It's sad to me and I believe to the author, that today's children are growing up way too fast. They need to be children, because adulthood and all the troubles come way too soon. The book is about Kaylee and her friends trying to find out why the sun has disappeared and where has it gone. Ms. Bean presents a valuable lesson for adults and children that we need to be appreciative of the people and the world in which we live. We should learn to use that imagination, if we don't, it will disappear. I believe that children should play outside as much as they can, riding bikes, playing tag, building things int he sand or with twigs or anything they can find. They don't need at such a young age to depend on electronics to keep them occupied. Let children be children. Adulthood is just around the corner. The author wrote a wonderful children's book with lots of lessons, wonderful illustrations and the rhyming words that keep a child's attention. This is a book that should be in everyone's home that has contact with children, in libraries and schools. Good lessons in an interesting, attention holding way.

I received a complimentary copy of COME BACK DEAR SUN from the author, Geena Bean for my view of the book. No other compensation took place.
