Night-Time Numbers: A Scary Counting Book [NOOK Book]

Overview

"Roth uses a variety of papers and fabrics to make the clever, intricate collages that accompany her text. The repetitive rhyme asks readers, "What can you see ?" on the rooftops, in the window, and around the house tonight. The reply is "I can see one monster in the pale moonlight," " two dragons in the pale moonlight," etc. The last spread includes an angel "to keep me safe and sound." Some of the collage creatures could be frightening to little ones, although the constant presence of the mother with the child in every picture is reassuring.

Overview

"Roth uses a variety of papers and fabrics to make the clever, intricate collages that accompany her text. The repetitive rhyme asks readers, "What can you see ?" on the rooftops, in the window, and around the house tonight. The reply is "I can see one monster in the pale moonlight," " two dragons in the pale moonlight," etc. The last spread includes an angel "to keep me safe and sound." Some of the collage creatures could be frightening to little ones, although the constant presence of the mother with the child in every picture is reassuring. Older children will admire the artwork and enjoy identifying the different materials used to make the pictures. They will delight in counting the monsters from 1 to 10 and echoing the rhythmic chant as it is read to them. An unusual book that will fascinate youngsters." - School Library Journal. Narrated by Anthony Call (Star Trek, The Twilight Zone).

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this unsettling volume, a mother and child explore their home. Peeking out windows and under beds, they list two dragons, three witches and more: "Who can you see in the closet tonight?/ I can see eight ghosts in the pale moonlight." Though a view of pointy hats through the window hints at the three witches to follow, and eight shirts hanging in a closet foreshadow the ghosts on the next page, many of the connections between household objects and scary apparitions are a stretch. Roth (Cinnamon's Day Out) establishes a satisfying call-and-response rhythm, but her uncharacteristically imprecise fabric-and-paper collages look as ramshackle as an old house, and her facile resolution ("Who can you see shining all around?/ I can see an angel, to keep me safe and sound") may not allay bedtime fears. Ages 2-6. (Oct.)
Children's Literature - Bonnie Bruneau
Nighttime can be a scary with suspected spooky creatures hiding in the darkness. Count from one ghoulish monster to ten chilling bats, and count them in the eerie darkness of night. "Who can you see in the backyard tonight? I can see one monster in the pale moonlight." Six sharks swim in the bathtub, seven spiders spin webs in the toy chest and eight ghosts haunt an ancient closet. Roth's cut paper collages bring a comforting visitor at the end to banish any nighttime monsters.
Kirkus Reviews
Night-Time Numbers What creepy-crawlies lurk in the dark? As a mother and child move through the familiar routine of getting ready for bed, she asks, "who can you see?" and listens carefully to the child's responses, which include monsters, dragons, witches, wolves, ghosts, and ghouls. Vibrant collage illustrations in a wide variety of textures complement the short rhyming text, and culminate in a golden yellow scene showing an angel watching over the sleeping child, who, having named her fears, can now sleep soundly. (Picture book. 2-6)
