Big Round Sun
The big round sun in the springtime sky (form large circle with arms)

Winked at a cloud that was passing by. (wink eye)

The little cloud laughed as it scattered rain,
(flutter fingers downward)

Then out came the big round sun again. (form large circle with arms)

"Sector 7" is a wordless book, and for that reason I would not suggest this item for most storytimes. Rather, this book would be a nice addition for a small group or for individual reading. Children delight in the illustrations and bring to life their own stories.


Book: Sector 7 / David Wiesner.

While on a school trip to the Empire State Building, a boy is taken by a friendly cloud to visit Sector 7, where he discovers how clouds are shaped and channeled throughout the country.
