It Is Night - Phyllis Rowand, Laura Dronzek


Laura Dronzek re-imagines this Phyllis Rowand's 1953 story with bright acrylic illustrations. The story starts out at night and goes through a list of creatures and objects, each time asking the reader where it should sleep and then providing the answer on the next page. For instance, "Where would a rooster roost?  In a chicken coop." or "Where does a railroad train go at night? If it is going somewhere, it goes there. And if it is not, it stand still on the tracks." 


Finally, at the end of the book, the reader gets a nice surprise, revealing where all of these things are really sleeping for the night.


I can see this book being one that kids would want to read over and over again.
