School Library Journal

PreS-K

An inviting exploration of the wonders of nighttime, originally published in 1962. Text and images bring out the positive: night is a time to make wishes on stars, find the Big Dipper, and enjoy a bright moon. Darkness, the author and artist remind readers, also plays a part in holidays from fireworks on the 4th of July, to "spooky Halloween make-believe," to caroling at Christmas time. The book closes on a quiet note as animals, birds, and fish go to sleep, and a youngster, with Teddy Bear close by, tucks into bed. Thin, sketchlike black line drawings, awash in sumptuous jewel-toned colors, work in tandem with this soothing tale sure to diminish night frights for youngsters concerned about the dark.-Barbara Elleman, Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, Amherst, MA

My Mom read this to me and my sisters when I was about five. The wonderful pictures and soothing text made such an impact that I found our old copy and have been reading it to my three children. It's great to see it is being released again.
