Sky All Around
by Anna Grossnickle Hines

A young girl and her father hike to a nearby hilltop where they watch the sun set and the stars appear...Hines' full-color artwork, softly drawn in deepening hues as night falls, stretches horizontally across each double-page spread...the layout works quite effectively, particularly as a device for identifying constellations without distorting the larger picture of the night sky. A well-designed picture book with an appealing childlike air.
