Overview

Grandfather Twilight by Barbara Helen Berger, Barbara Helen Berger

When day is gone, and shadows begin to deepen, it is time for Grandfather Twilight to close his book, put on his jacket, and go for a walk through the forest.

Little birds hush as he walks by, and the rabbits and other small creatures watch in silence as he performs his very special evening task and returns to his house among the trees. Small readers and listeners, too, will sense the serenity of this poetic story, and will be comforted to learn that the twilight is a gentle, friendly time.

Exquisite pictures extend and illuminate the text, to reveal the nightly miracle so faithfully performed by Grandfather Twilight. Perfect for reading aloud and for sharing at bedtime, this beautiful and reassuring book will be cherished by old and young alike.

Everything about this gem is magical. And magic is where young children live. I never tired of reading this book to my son. He will no doubt read it to his children. It is a true classic.

The artwork is beautiful and creative. The text is soothing. Grandfather Twilight has been one of our favorite bedtime stories for each of our 4 children. Reading through this story with your children nestled close to you brings such a peaceful feeling into the room, that it actually makes bedtime easier - really.

This story is about a man who has 2 animals.The man goes to the chest once a day and grabs 1 pearle. When he leaves his house and makes a step the pearle grows bigger. When he is in the ocean the pearle is so big that when he lets it go it is the moon. When he see that the pearle is in the sky he goes back to sleep. I recomend this book because you can learn whats the moon in this book. I also like this book because Indide the man's house its painted like nature. The pictures help me because their were 3 in a row and in each picture the pearle grows bigger. I Hope You Read This Book.

The first time I read this book was when my eleven year old son was one and I fell in love. When a parent loves a book, it is imparted in the reading and this book became my favorite book to read. It is a soothing, quiet story that explains how night comes into the world. The enlargement of the pearl as it becomes the moon always made my son's eyes grow as big as moonpies...a wonderous book and one that makes you wish someone were tucking you into bed at night.
