About the Book
See what’s happening in the world while you sleep!
Darkness is full of life, and this fascinating book opens kids’ eyes to what goes on in the night.
Big, beautiful illustrations—including five pullout gatefolds—introduce children to nocturnal animals, plants that glow in the dark, and even people who work at night and sleep in the day. Experience nighttime in a forest, in town, in a village, at an airport, and deep in the ocean and underground where some creatures never see the light.
