Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In a poetic text, Hargrove takes a look at creatures with wings who inhabit twilight and moonlight. Moths are attracted to the porch light and geese fly across the sky, crickets chirp but bats fly on nearly silent wing. Fireflies glimmer but in the silent night, this young boy beds down while wings flit past the moonlit sky. Hargrove has created a quiet look at the nighttime world and a book that one could read with a child before bedding down for the evening. Part of the "Harper Growing Tree" series, which includes tips for reading and sharing stories and a web site with additional information. 2001, HarperFestival, $9.95. Ages 2 to 3.

PreS-A mother and her young child gaze at the sky from a meadow and observe the gradual transformation from twilight to starlight. The gentle text describes various creatures with wings that appear in the illustrations, such as moths, geese, bats, fireflies, and crickets. As starlight approaches, the boy is ready to go home to his cozy bed. Soft watercolor illustrations set the tone for a calming story. Serene reading for bedtime as well as a peaceful choice for preschool storytimes.-Olga R. Kuharets, Broward County Libraries, Fort Lauderdale, FL Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
