This book employs some very nice language to describe through young eyes what it means to have your shadow always be with you. This would be a good story to read with children that love to watch their shadows.

This is a decent story of a boy who has a friend that only leaves his side when the sun goes down, his shadow. I think its a good book to use with Pre K to 2nd grade.

This could be a good book for an integrated science and literature lesoon to introduce shadows.
