This is such a sweet story for kids. It teaches an important lesson on sharing and it also helps kids learn about different animals. I love the added facts at the end of the book. This will be very helpful for kids to learn about the animals shown in this books. It also teaches about what a nocturnal animal is.

Not only is this book educational, but it's fun. I loved the illustrations in this book. They were so cute and any child will fall in love with them. Ov

'The Tasty Treat' is a simple and neat story about Dawn, a red fox who goes in search for her friends during the night in the middle of the woods. The author lays down the core theme of the story in an explicit manner, thus making it easier for a child to understand and take in the values. Brief information/facts about the nocturnal animals are given in the final few pages of the book. The illustrations were rich, vibrant, and colorful. Had the book been packed with a tad bit extra content, I wo ...more

An eclectic group of friends who geographically would live nowhere near each other and the only thing they have in common is being nocturnal? It just doesn’t work for me.
This is a cute and unique little early reader book from indie publisher Fabled Films Press. It’s part of an 8 book “Grow & Read” series about The Nocturnals that comes in three graduated levels of difficulty to help early readers progress.

I really liked the art in this book and that while the story is simple, it introduces kids to some unique vocabulary and animal knowledge. I fully admit I wasn’t so sure what a Pangolin was and I knew vaguely that Pomelos, the animals favorite snack, were a mem

The Nocturnals books are part of the Grow & Read Early Reader Program published by Fabled Films Press. “The Tasty Treat” focuses on the themes of friendship, sharing, and problem solving.

Dawn the fox wakes up one night (remember that they are nocturnal animals) and goes looking for her friends Tobin the pangolin and Bismark the sugar glider. Upon finding Tobin they are pleasantly surprised when Bismark drops a pomelo from a tree. The three friends have a tasty treat to share.

I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. My daughter read this book with my 5 year old granddaughter several times. My granddaughter is really smart ( I might be a little biased), but she loves this book. She really likes the informational section at the back that talks about the characters in the book -a red fox, a pangolin and a sugar glider.

It is listed as a level 1, which is for beginning readers. It is super simple, even though some of the words/names are a little big. They make good sight

Another great read from the Nocturnals! I have used their Grow & Read Level 2 books in my classroom before, and this Early Reader Level 1 looks like a great introduction book for the beginning of the school year. I’m always on the lookout for books that promote sharing so this is an especially welcome addition.

My daughter is just starting to read on her own, and this book was great for her! She was able to work her way through the words while learning new ones. When she stumbled on pangolin, we were able to look at the glossary in the back to learn more about what a pangolin was. There were also plenty of cute pictures to help her understand what she was reading.

This one I think would be great for early readers. I could read all the words and follow the story. I loved the artwork and the story was cute! I really think the extra stuff in the book would appeal to kids of all ages. Even I had fun with it! This would be a must read for all first time readers!
I received a free copy from a Goodreads giveaway.

This was a cute beginning reader, with cute and simple illustrations. It introduced some new vocabulary to early readers, but not words they will likely encounter often. It was nothing special or overly exciting. I am not sure it would entertain or intrigue too many kids.

This book teaches about three nocturnal animals and a fruit. Very informative, thanks to fact pages at end of the book. Cute story about three friends sharing a snack. Not much story in the book itself, so probably best for preschoolers.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from Hidden Gems.

This is an excellent book for beginning readers. I love the illustrations and the fact that it is a bit science oriented as well as an early reader. Your little reader will love this book. (Also those who are too little to read yet...they will love the illustrations!) Highly recommended!

This low-level reader had cute animals and a few facts to boot. The story left some to be desired, as the reader is introduced the characters and that is about it. But the variety of animals and foods could definitely draw the attention of a young reader.

Dawn is legit, Tobin is cool, and Bismark is favorite character.

The Tasty Treat is a great introduction book to the friends Dawn, Tobin, and Bismark. Children will learn three types of nocturnal animals, and meet the friends.

I love the Nocturnals, they are a great little group of animals. The pictures are fun and detailed. The story is interesting and good for a read-along. And the little lessons are great.
