This perfect bedtime read-aloud describes that magical time, just as we're drifting off to sleep, when the moon the moon shines brightly and life emerges from the forest.
Hello moon, Goodbye sun. Night is near, Day is done.
When the sun goes down and most of us are getting ready for bed, the nighttime animals of the forest all wake up to the light of the moon. It calls to the them, from the slyest fox to the tiniest mouse, who feasts on leaves and fruit and scurries beneath the brush.
A gentle rhyming text that will appeal to the youngest child is illustrated with soft and dreamy artwork in this perfect bedtime book in the tradition of Goodnight Moon.
A sweet and comforting bedtime book. Nature, rhyming text (of only a couple words per page) accompany lush illustrations of animals in nature, a storm, etc. The color palette of deep blues and greens was very relaxing!
A lovely, lyrical, vibrantly illustrated book about the natural world at night. Wake up with the nocturnal animals and experience a night full of exploration, foraging, and a little danger. The gentle text would make for a good bedtime read. The rhyme flows fairly well, though there are a few imperfect rhymes in the text. I don't think that detracts too much from the overall flow of the story, though.
A wonderful rhyming story of how night turns into day and all of the creatures that scurry about during the nighttime. Students will be able to see pictures of nighttime animals. The illustrations get lighter as the book moves along. The book's beginning, "Night is near, Day is done," ties nicely with the book's ending of "Hello, day!/Goodbye, night!"

A book with simple rhyming text about nighttime. I didn't find the overall book very interesting since there isn't a story line but if you were talking about things that happen at night, this would be useful.
LOVE - I want to take all of these gorgeous pictures and hang them in order around the walls of a nursery that matches the colors and themes of this story. And the lovely small snippets of rhyming text would make this a wonderful bedtime story.
This one was sort of under the radar but I'll file it away as a lovely bedtime read-aloud and gorgeous gift for families. The illustrations are delightful and the cadence of the minimal text so soothing.
