#blogbookaday: Twilight Chant

20 Jul

Twilight Chant.jpgSummary:  “A lyrical exploration of the transition between day and night and of the animals who thrive during this special time.” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: A poetic story that teaches kids about crepuscular animals, animals that are mainly active during twilight. As a family walks home from the beach at twilight, they see deer, bats, fireflies, foxes and other animals creep out of their daylight hiding places to eat, play and explore in the low light.

Personal Reaction: I was blown away by the beautiful watercolor illustrations that perfectly mimic the twilight sky filled with oranges, pinks, purples and blues. And I loved how the took the last line of the page before to introduce a new animal on the page turn. With some additional information provided in the back of the book, this is a perfect bedtime story for your own nature lover.

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
