The Bunny's Night-Light: A Glow-In-The-Dark Search

The Bunny's Night-Light: A Glow-In-The-Dark Search Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Little Bunny can't sleep because "there's too much dark at night," it's up to Papa to find just the right night-light for his little bunny. The pair go for a walk around the woods and Papa points out the possibilities. Perhaps the moon is the ideal night-light? Or maybe the fireflies will be able to help? Or even the little glowworm? Featuring luminescent nighttime illustrations that glow in the dark, and a comforting text, this bedtime story will resonate with little bunnies and their parents.

Review:

"Hayes's (the Benny and Penny books) sweet bedtime book has gentle, repetitive prose that tells the story of Bunny and her Papa, who go searching for a nightlight. Bunny objects to all the lights they find (the moon is 'too bright,' the stars 'too twinkly,' the fireflies 'too busy') until Mama presents Bunny with the perfect nightlight, which casts comforting shadows on the wall. The book's lilting rhythms end with a poem that ties into the book's underlying, reassuring message that while nighttime may seem dark, 'here's always a light somewhere.' Just right for the subject matter, Hayes's cartoons are, as usual, friendly and warm, including cozy village scenes surrounded by a gray-blue border filled with images of clouds, bedtime reading, and the night sky. Throughout the book, various light sources — those mentioned in the story and others — are treated with a glow-in-the-dark coating. While the gimmick is likely to please young readers, having to repeatedly turn the lights on and off (in order to appreciate the phosphorescent effect) may make for some slow-glowing bedtime reading. Ages 3 — 6." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
