Booklist Review

Ages 4^-6. From the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out series, this picture book introduces several creatures of the night: coyote, skunk, harvest mouse, barn owl, opossum, raccoon, bat, and tree frog. Each double-page spread focuses on one or two of the animals, with a well-composed night scene showing the creatures in action. Muted shades of blues, greens, and browns predominate, lightened in the scenes of dusk and daybreak. The book ends with two pages describing the animals' daytime homes, and a page of activities for young children. A good classroom read-aloud choice for units on nocturnal animals. --Carolyn Phelan


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Two useful series entries. Night Animals features colorful descriptions of familiar nocturnal creatures such as the skunk, raccoon, and bat. The terms "diurnal" and "nocturnal" are defined, and there are brief explanations of how and why some species have adapted to nighttime activity. The final pages tell where these animals sleep during the day and suggest activities for further discovery. Pfeffer begins with examples of sounds, such as finger snapping, and progresses to an explanation of how the vocal cords and ear bones vibrate. Echolocation, sound waves, sonar, and even decibels are covered with clear, concrete examples. There are many interesting tidbits about animals, such as how snakes hear by putting their heads against the ground. Activities listed at the end of the book would be fun to try at home or at school. Both books have excellent, attractive illustrations. Any library in need of updating its science collection would do well with these titles.-Jackie Hechtkopf, Talent House School, Fairfax, VA (c) Copyright 2010.
