Product Details

Praise

* “Gorgeous. . . . Minor relies on simple, lyrical text and stunning, full-color paintings to share characteristics of each creature, as he takes readers from day to night and back again. Many of the critters will be familiar to children, while several are lesser known. . . . Appealing, realistic illustrations. There are two pages of “Fun Facts” . . . with some interesting additional information for the most curious. This lovely title should find a spot in all collections and will likely inspire greater outdoor observation and appreciation.”—School Library Journal, starred review

“An album of contrasts. . . . The attraction of this invitation to explore daytime and nighttime worlds is visual: appealing gouache-and-watercolor animal portraits display Minor’s characteristic use of light and color, meticulous detail, and appreciation for nature. . . . For storytime or laptime, another beautiful rendition of the natural world.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
“Minor’s bucolic imagery suggests abundant space for humans and wildlife alike, and even if this green world is not an everyday reality for all readers, Minor’s gentle scenes will draw them in.”—Publishers Weekly

“In his signature representational artistic style—detailed, luminous, and pristine—Minor compares and contrasts diurnal and nocturnal animals.”—The Horn Book
