Staff Pick

A beautiful Caldecott-winning picture book, now made into a board book. The simple black, white, and gold pictures are warm and comforting. This rhythmic story with few words follows the light as it travels from the outside and into a home, illuminating the rooms and the story. A fantastic winding-down, getting-ready-for-bed book. The sparse words and simple graphics will appeal to toddlers, who can then "write" their own story.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Caldecott Medal-winning bedtime classic, available in a board book edition for the first time. Susan Marie Swanson's elegant prose and Beth Krommes's spectacular illustrations open up a nighttime world where ordinary objects become beautifully illuminated. Images of a key, a toy, a bear, and a book leap from the pages as were reminded that even when night arrives, the suns 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 nighttime 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.
