Shine is a love song between a parent and a child, celebrating the beauty and joy of everyday family life, through mess and chaos and daily routines. Shine is also a story that seeks to find the beauty in ordinary things- the wonder of a lazy afternoon, the joy of being together. It is an attempt to put words to that spark of connection that we have with each other.
Make reading a happy and fun experience so that your child learns to connect books with joy. If your child won't sit still for a whole book, don't force them - sing a song or put the book aside for another time.
