I liked this book since its about exploring your neighborhood and enjoying the place where you live. The story centers on knowing what happens in your neighborhood when the sun goes down. The more familiar you are with your surroundings, the more comfortable and secure you feel. As the boy in this novel puts on his red jacket and grabs the leash for his dog, the lights in his neighborhood windows are coming alive. As he sees familiar objects out on his walk, and he understands the noises that he hears, and sees familiar people and understands the scenes playing out in the windows that he is passing by, the boy feels comfortable in his neighborhood and he enjoys where he lives. Perhaps he sees a party in a window or someone learning to dance. Does he see someone playing the piano? Perhaps there’s someone receiving a hug or someone is just daydreaming or eating. Perhaps he sees nothing but darkness in the window but on the windowsill, he thinks he sees something. The boy may hear a noise which sounds familiar or it may not. Sometimes, the boy has to let his imagination fill in the blanks when he’s not quite sure what he has just heard. This is a cute book. I liked the quietness of the book and how this book applies to everyone. I enjoyed the illustrations as I thought they added to the mystery of the night.

A show-stopping, must-have for every book shelf Set in urban Somerville, Mass (a neighborhood in Boston) this is a book with so much gorgeous nuance it's tough to know where to begin. There are so many things happening in all of the windows it's a veritable goldmine for curious kids (and adults!) who like to discover something new upon repeated readings. A little boy tastes a bit of independence walking his dog around the neighborhood - a diverse mix of homes, apts., shops and parks. The sun sets gorgeously, progressing with each page turn, and the economy of text is thoughtful and warm. And don't miss the case cover (under the jacket), just a gorgeous wash of sunsetting color.
