Praise

★ “The Steads have created an environment as whimsical and kind as the one that nurtured Amos McGee. . . . A gentle array of soft colors and sweet animal faces quickly engages readers. Onomatopoeia, descriptive phrases, and repetition make this a very endearing reading experience for all. . . .  This meets all the expectations one has of this duo.”—School Library Journal, Starred Review

★ “Beautifully illustrated. . . . An endearing new folktale from the Caldecott-winning duo.”—Booklist, Starred Review

★  ”Waste no time in adding this gem to the storytime shelf.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

“The gentle text . . . leaves space for child listeners to ponder their own dreamscapes. The illustrations . . . contribute moments of subtle humor. . . .”—The Horn Book

“The lulling cadence and gentle, folkloric tone make this an easy pick for bedtime, and Erin Stead’s familiar art style underscores that feel with soft dapples, slim linework, and muted tones.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
 
“A gently comic telling that appreciates creatures’ gentle ways and offers a quiet reminder about perceptions’ ability to mislead.”—Publishers Weekly

“Kid lit has picked up another memorable animal trio with The Sun Is Late and So Is the Farmer . . . . Readers of this disarming and dear picture book will relish being miles ahead of the trio at its center: barnyard animals who are convinced that the sun is worrisomely overdue for its entrance.”—Shelf Awareness
