Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The title choice seems a bit off the mark given that two-thirds of the book focuses on daytime activities in a variety of locales. It starts with a good morning in the rainforests. But other than the monkeys, parents are on their own trying to name the other animals in the scene. We move through a variety of habitats and the same issues arise—who are all these creatures? Then readers move to the Great Wall of China, Redwood Forest, deserts with a wind farm and camel caravans. Eventually readers arrive at Mount Everest and it is beginning to get dark. That spread offers a strange juxtaposition; nocturnal animals appear on one page while an exploding volcano is on the opposite (not a quiet or restful occurrence). The mix is an odd one and hops from the polar regions to a big city where, in spite of what appear to be icicles hanging from the rooftops, a father and baby son appear on an outside balcony with the father looking at the city lights as they are supposedly turning off. There is no real cohesive story. The artwork appears to be computer-generated not that it is that necessarily bad, but it doesn't do much except add to the hodgepodge. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
