The illustrations in this book are amazing. I love how the author uses senses other than hearing to describe Jacob and his father's experience of watching the sun rise.

A little boy is deaf and wakes up extra early to view the beautiful sunrise with his father. The text used detailed descriptions on the little boys senses, such as what he saw, smelled, felt. I like how they used a father, rather than the usual mother. The details that the text used to describe how the boy saw things, not using his hearing, gave a helpful perspective take on the point of the little boy, and would also hopefully help younger readers understand what it is like to be able not to hear.The illustrations in the book are very colorful and appropriate to the story. The pictures show us how his sight more strongly applied to his day to day experiences. When he finally witnesses the sunrise, the page explodes with a burst of orange, it is almost like the sunrise is literally on the page!

Jacob is deaf but Patricia Lakin takes the reader on a journey that sees inky the beauty in Jacob's life. Jacob and his dad wakes up early one morning to go to the beach. Jacob describes the calmness of the ocean and the warmth if the morning sun. Patricia Lakin shows the beauty in Jacob's disability and does not focus on his his lost of hearing.

This is a touching story about a young boy's first time seeing a sunrise with his father. Every part of the story is injected with subtleties which shed light on how the young child operated with out the ability to hear, such as the using the squeezing of the hand as a way for the father and son to communicate. While the story's focus is on the sharing of a special moment between loved ones, the underlying aspect of being deaf adds to the tale a very unique perspective on the world.

A touching story of a boy and his father and their special time together. The boy, who is deaf, and his father quietly sneak out of the house one morning and trek through the woods until they come to a clearing. They sit and wait for the sunrise, an experience they had not shared before. A sweet look at the simple things in life that really mean alot.
