Sunset to Sunrise

This book, Sunrise to Sunset continues the theme of travel by providing numerous nature scenes that take children on a vicarious voyage from sunrise to sunset. A voyage depicting beautiful nature scenes that could be elaborated on by discussing the purpose and or function of each landscape captured in the photograph. It is also the aim that this book will increase children’s curiosity about the world they live in, and amplify, for older children, their critical thinking skills. Amplify by encouraging them to respond to posed questions regarding the scenery visible in each photograph. For example, what time of the year might this picture illustrate? Where have you seen a waterfall? Or would you like to see a waterfall? What is a prairie and why do they exist? Why do rainbows exist? This book could be used as picture book for infants, toddlers and preschoolers as well as stimulate conversations for older children. It is hoped that the captions and scenic photographs captured by Kangming Ma, Ph.D. will allow individuals who are unable to travel extensively, to appreciate a country’s natural beauty.
