So I had to pull out this book to read. We always think Jose Aruego's sun is the cutest thing. I also love that it's "adapted from a Slovenian folk tale." (Love those folk tales!)

When the sun doesn't appear for three whole days, the little chicks get worried. "It was cold and sad without sunshine". So they go to find the sun and bring him back to the sky, meeting and bringing along other animals on the way.
