How the Sun Was Brought Back to the Sky

School has started, but it doesn't feel like crisp Autumn.  Instead we've been having the worst humid, hot sticky, sunless days.  With all this grey, Charlotte suggested maybe the sun was sick. 

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.
