About the Author
Grant Snider is an orthodontist by day, waking early to write and illustrate comics and picture books as he watches the sunrise. He lives in Wichita, Kansas.

"This sweet, simple story will awaken young listeners' imaginations to a world of early-a.m. wonders. . . . [What Sound is Morning?] a fine springboard into laptime, classroom, and library-programming activities. . . Bold illustrations burst from the pages. . . Children will raise a loud cheer for this morning story."-Kirkus, starred review

"[In What Sound Is Morning?] Snider's lyrical text is accompanied by digitally enhanced full-bleed spreads that feature thick-outlined shapes and a color palette that brightens as morning progresses. . . . listeners will enjoy locating the subtle details in the art. With large-font text displayed in a range of colors to ensure legibility, this will be welcomed as a read-aloud or for units on the senses."-Booklist

"[What Sound Is Morning? is a] beautiful companion to Snider's What Color is Night? that encourages readers to slow down, greet the day, and fill the world with their own songs. Simple text accompanies bright, warm illustrations to form a calm, moving book that is the perfect morning read-aloud, ensuring a gentle and positive start to any day."-School Library Journal

"In this standalone follow-on to What Color Is Night?, a narrator invokes early morning sounds as the world begins to stir. . . . Snider's spreads . . . have the feel of silkscreen images. . . . Snider's creation uncovers everyday wonders by re-creating a single sense with language, form, and color."-Publishers Weekly
