Karen Saunders, Baby Badger's Wonderful Night (Gullane, 2011)

Baby badger is scared of the dark until his father takes him for a walk in the woods and shows him the wonders of the night. A sedate, beautifully-illustrated little book that should enchant both toddlers and the adults reading it to them. Holds up to repeated reading very well, and the Bean is a big fan of it (but then he's a big fan of anything containing the moon these days, so take that as it comes). I quite like this one. ***

"Soft" is the best word to describe the illustrations and tone of this book. Baby Badger is afraid of nighttime. Papa Badger patiently shows him the beauty of the night---from the stars to the rays of morning which calms him to sleep.

Wonderful, soft, cute illustrations. Great and simple moral of the story, to not be afraid of nighttime. We especially loved that it was Baby and Papa, since those stories are harder to find. Very sweet.

Sweet story about a badger who is afraid of the night until he spends a night with his dad. Soft text and illustrations--good bedtime book. Big enough images to use in storytime.

I’m a writer for children and teenagers. My books include the novel Me Suzy P and the picture book Baby Badger's Wonderful Night. I’ve written a lot of books too, ones that didn't have my name on, on all sorts of subjects. Things like mermaids, fairies, cars, teenagers, princesses and super heroes, plus heaps of other stuff I’ve probably forgotten.
