Synopsis

The House in the Night by Susan Marie Swanson

Susan Marie Swanson's elegant prose and Beth Krommes' spectacular illustrations open up a night time world where ordinary objects become beautifully illuminated. Images of a key, a toy, a bear, and a book leap from the pages as we're reminded that even when night arrives, the sun's warm light never truly leaves us. A spare, patterned text and glowing pictures explore the origins of light that make a house a home in this bedtime book for young children. Naming night time things that are both comforting and intriguing to preschoolers - a key, a bed, the moon - this timeless book illuminates a reassuring order to the universe.

Reviews

This volume's artful simplicity, homely wisdom and quiet tone demonstrate the interconnected beauty and order of the world in a way that both children and adults will treasure. (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
