The MoonFlower by Peter Loewer, Jean Loewer

When the sun sets, the night comes alive.
As the moon shimmers down, bats swoop, hawkmoths flit, owls hunt, and the moonflower unfurls for its one night in the moonlight. In this lyrical yet accurate account of nature at night, readers will learn how moths drink, how bats “see,” how bumblebees sleep, how vines climb, and even how to plant your own moonflower.
Husband and wife Peter and Jean Loewer are writers and illustrators who deal with the natural world. The Loewers have collaborated on two other children’s books: Pond Water Zoo and The Inside-Out Stomach.

The illustrations portray the story of the Moonflower beautifully drawn and colored. The story depicts the exquisite details of a flower that opens at night to children who may never see this magical sight. An excellent work of art and heart.
