Bold, Bright, Glow-in-the-dark Illustrations! The story...ugggg! I did not like it at all! "What does night mean when you're blind? Since dark is dark, bats hardly mind." It was misinformation like this, implying bats are blind, that made me cringe. I know, I is a children's book for the youngest set. In the back of the book, there is a brief notation for each of the animals mentioned to explain further, ie. "Bats don't see very well, but have great hearing. They find their way by mak ...more
I liked this book. I feel like the holographic parts of the illustrations really added to the book because it showed a realistic motion of the animal. I also feel like the holograms in addition to the well-drawn illustrations will really draw reader to this book. This book does a great job telling about nocturnal animals and I would use it during that unit.

Lights Out, Nights Out turned out to be a book that all my kids enjoyed and that hardly ever happens. Lights Out, Nights Out (LONO) is a cardstock picture book that has ani-motion images throughout. I did not like this book for the storyline; I enjoyed it for several other reasons.

BEAUTIFUL pictures the one I read is a glow in the dark edition. Very cool. This would make for a good bedtime read as it discusses night time critters (bats owls, etc). But it doesn't have a story line, so if your kiddos need a plot in order to be happy with their book, this one isn't for them.
My 5 year old loves this book!
This is a very neat book with the animals discussed "coming to life" with the Ani-Motion technology used to make the book. I loved how the animals seemed to move on the pages and so did my boys! Very interesting section on all the nocturnal animals covered in the book on the last two pages. Animals included hedgehogs, fireflies, hippos, and wolves to name just a few.
Pretty cool book about nocturnal animals with the "AniMotion" technology as the real star of the show as it provides for very cool moving images by flipping the page back and forth (although it is a little on the dark side). Neat.

William Boniface may or may not exist. Ordinary Boy, after all, tells his own story. Mr. Boniface could simply be a creation of the publisher in order to fulfill the requirement that an author be listed on the cover of this book. Given that possibility, there is no harm in revealing that Mr. Boniface has lent his name to over two dozen far less wordy children's books that were also in need of an a ...more
