Description

Marvel at the sky in this meditative die-cut book, a follow-up to You Are Light and My Favorite Color, from the Caldecott Honor–winning creator of the Journey trilogy.

Its dawn begins in darkness.
With hope we greet its light.

Within the pages of this elegant book is the entire sky. Lyrical text moves readers through the day, from dawn to dusk, while ink- and die-cut lines resembling stained glass arc across the pages like birds in flight. An encounter with the translucent, jewel-colored panes in this special board book offers a luminous reminder that, no matter the hour or the hue, we all dwell together under one magnificent sky.

Praise for One Sky

Becker takes readers on a visually striking, poetic journey through the day with the vibrant sky as the backdrop. . . . Between Becker’s poetic text, featuring satisfying alliteration (“We wonder at its wildness”) and the amazing sense of movement and color, readers are treated to a feast for the ears, eyes, and imagination. Lyrically dazzling, artistically stunning
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Becker’s die-cut board books encourage readers to explore the way the pages interact with the light. . . With the illustrations, the sky is rendered in tissue-paper bleeds, creating stained-glass windows of clouds, sunshine, and stars.
