Why is there only one sun shining in the sky? And why does a rooster's song accompany the sunrise? In the delightful, traditional Chinese story The Archer and the Sun, children will hear about the brave archer who shot the extra suns out of the sky, and the feisty rooster who temped the last, timid sun to show its face. Gifted storyteller and author Rob Cleveland appealingly and gently performs this story, throwing earnest enthusiasm into Rooster's “cocka-doodle-doo!” when the sun finally rises.
This classic story from China tells why the sun comes up in the morning and goes down at night, as well as why a certain farm animal is there every morning to loudly greet the sun. Illustrated by Baird Hoffmire.
