Kudos to the mother and daughter team for the creation of Sunshine’s friendship story. Here at Lauren Simone Publishing House, we are always proud to share work of young authors and illustrators.
Illustrated in pencil and pencil crayon, a story of little girl named Sunshine who sat in her room, while other children played outdoors enjoying the warm weather. Sunshine was very blessed to have lots of toys and games, but a friend she didn’t have. Using a rhythmic tone, readers learn of Sunshine’s search for a new friend. It is a message of faith, hope, imagination, patience, and persistence.
India Haye is an author, blogger and mother of three girls from Boston, MA. Araya-Sunshine Ortiz is India’s oldest daughter, who loves to draw and dreams of being an actor and director when she is older. We enjoyed the story and wish the author and illustrator much success. We give this book 4 stars and recommend this book for children who are in grade 2 to 4 due to its word length.
