"The Way to Start a Day" received a Caldecott Honor in 1979. The book describes how people from different cultures around the world from many different time periods celebrate the sunrise. There isn't necessarily an overarching storyline, instead the reader is told to find their own way to celebrate their morning, while other cultures' morning rituals are shown. I actually think the lack of a plot aids the book's impact on the reader; being able to see these people from different times and places greeting the morning sun just like many of us do today is very powerful. Although every culture is different in how they start the day, waking up and looking up at the sky seems to be a universal experience. The illustrations are powerful in their own right; I can't tell what the medium of the art is (I think it's pen and ink), but the art style is extremely 1970s, though I believe this is a good thing. The extremely thin, loose lines and strong, contrasting yet harmonizing colors (I know that phrase logically doesn't make sense but if you see Peter Parnall's art you'll know what I mean) perfectly illustrate how it feels to be sitting by yourself at dawn, watching the sun rise. In all honesty, I didn't care too much for the text of the book, but the illustrations made me fall in love with it. I think that "The Way to Start a Day" is appropriate for all ages, since it not only teaches the reader about different cultures, but also encourages those reading to create their own way to appreciate each new day- a ritual that I think everyone needs in the stressful times we currently live in.

The Way to Start A Day is a story about how people from around the world greet the sun in the morning. Those in Peru chanted, while those in China rung golden bells. This is a good story to read to children because it exposes them to different parts of the world, and the different traditions and cultures that are a apart of a place. Even though I am in college, I found this book to be pretty interesting. I did not know that people from around the world greeted the sun, let alone greet the sun in different ways.
As far as the art goes, I found it to have very calming illustrations. There were lots of red and yellow, colors that I found to be bright, yet soothing. I think the art brings the text to life. When Baylor writes about the sun coming up, and it is a new day... the illustrations made those words stand out much more. All in all, the illustrations added emphasis to the text. ( )

This can teach inclusion in the world because everyone looks at the same sky. In this book, people chant to the sun with music and singing. This makes readers not feel so alone in the world. The beauty of the skies color is illustrated in the ending of the book and makes me think of life's simple pleasures. The diversity of culture is conveyed through the skies illustrations, it had hidden pictures of people within particular cultures, the book speaks of Aztec people specifically as well. ( )
