{Synopsis} – You’ll never know dear,
how much I love you.
I’ll give you lots of hugs…
and kisses every day!

This playful new shaped board book from Sandra Magsamen features a plush sun-shaped finger puppet embedded through the center of the book! This puppet then becomes a character on every spread, offering a uniquely interactive reading experience for you and your child. With a sweet interpretation of this beloved children’s song, and adorable illustrations, this playful board book invites little readers to sing along, and reminds them just how loved they are.

This new title is a follow-up to our exciting Twinkle, Twinkle, You’re My Star, and is part of a growing series of finger puppet books from Sandra Magsamen, the bestselling creator of over 30 baby and toddler books, with sales of over 3 million copies worldwide.

{My thoughts} – We absolutely love the Twinkle, Twinkle, You’re My Star book that was previously released. It’s become such a loved book by my girls that it’s in a bit of rough shape. They truly enjoy having that book read to them. When I saw this book in the Catalog I knew it was one that I needed to request. I knew my daughters would love it.

Onto the review. You Are My Sunshine is a finger puppet book that is loosely based on the song titled You Are My Sunshine that is a widely popular children’s song. It follows along with the song up until you get closer to the end of the book and then it the author adds in her own words.

Sandra Magsamen is an incredible children’s author. I absolutely love her books. The words on the pages are fun and cheerful. The illustrations are bright and colorful. I love how each book is as wonderful as the last. They are short books that are fun quick and easy reads. They have illustrations that or close enough to the real thing that a child can learn to distinguish what the object in the book is in relation to the object in the real world.

I highly recommend this book and any other book by Sandra Magsamen. I promise you won’t be disappointed. They are as I have stated incredible books!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
