Sometimes the ordinary events in a child's life can be difficult – a child who resists going to bed, fusses over food, or dawdles at picking up toys. Seven Times the Sun is a one-of-a-kind book, full of ideas, reflections, and practical advice offering a fresh view of daily life in the home and family. Weaving songs, stories, family rituals, and verses throughout, Darian shows how to bring joy to such daily events as mealtimes, going to bed, chores, naps, and playtime.
