A Ray of Love

by Nancy Harrison

Illustrations by John Joseph

A Ray of Love tells the story of Sunny, a young sun who is in training to become the sun of Earth. When he learns about all of the sadness and pain that exists on Earth, he becomes sad, and hopes to see more happiness. However, even on the days when he sees happiness, sadness and pain still exist. He learns his rays may spread warmth and light but it’s love that spreads happiness. He vows to spread love to everyone on Earth, one person at a time.

Endorsements & Reviews

Nancy Harrison’s A Ray of Love brings a ray of hope to parents and educators. I have great pleasure in endorsing this book as an educator for over thirty years, working with students ranging from Pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade and college, and as a mother who fought the counter culture of meaningless life, selfishness and strife of our society as my children were growing up. This children’s book is a welcome addition to home and school library shelves that parents and educators seek to stack with materials underscoring good character for children from the age of four to seven.

Nancy, I just received your book and read it to my five-year-old granddaughter. She was so excited and wanted me to read it to her right away. After reading it, her first comment was ‘the sun is really important isn’t it’. Thank you so much for a wonderful uplifting message.
