Jul 9, 2024

Written by: Roxane Turcotte

Illustrated by: Lucie Crovatto

Papa Jo loves to slow down and savor his day, but the excitable young Charlie may need some convincing…

Charlie’s grandfather, Papa Jo, uses an hourglass to remind himself that every moment is precious. When Charlie asks Papa Jo what his hourglass is for, she doesn’t really understand his answer. To teach Charlie the importance of taking her time and savoring her day, the pair spend their day at a leisurely pace, transforming every ordinary day into a wonderful time.

This gentle story reminds us to enjoy the precious moments we spend together. As young Charlie learns to slow down and appreciate the beauty of nature and everyday life, so too will your young reader. This affectionately illustrated book will work as a perfect bedtime story that will encourage children to reflect on their day and treasure the little things that make their life special.

In The Sun Never Hurries, Lucie Crovatto’s rich and tender illustrations transport readers to a cozy day cooking and exploring the outdoors. Roxane Turcotte’s writing showcases the special bond between a grandparent and grandchild.
