This book is all about nocturnal animals from fish to mammals. Its kind of spooky but very informative and has a lot of vocabulary explained in laymens terms. I think the pictures add to the spookyness of the book. They are well done. I like this book. It contained information about animals I didnt even know existed. But some were unnerving.
I liked learning about all of the different animals. My favorite were the Oarfish and the Tripod fish. The Tripod fish was pretty. I also liked the prairie dogs, especially when they smooched!
So many interesting facts! Basically, each two-page spread focuses on one nocturnal creature. I'm sure kids will be intrigued to read more about some of the animals they encounter!

I personally enjoyed reading this so I know my students will. Black Out is a book about animals that are nocturnal or live in complete darkness. I was taken away by some of the animals I had never heard of before! Especially the Honeypot Ants! Great self read for second and third grade. Boys will love it!

Use this book to talk about where different animals live. Use this book in a book report for the students. Have each child master a special animal and report to the class about that animal.

Beginning Chapter Book format. young children would enjoy hearing this read aloud and older children can use it for basic information on any of the various animals. AR: 3.5, 0.5pts
This book taught me that honey ant's queen does not move. They collect drinks from flowers too, like bees. At the end is an owl face and the book says Hoo! Hoo!
