BOOK SYNOPSIS
Creatures of the Night is a delightful tale of the world of nocturnal creatures. Inspired by his daughter's incessant questions regarding
nightly noises, Steve Brooks decided to write about the creatures that come out to play when we lay our heads down to sleep. Children are
fascinated, and sometimes intimidated, by this world that exists in the darkness. This beautifully illustrated rhyming tale allows them to
associate playful, fun characters with the sounds and noises they hear.
This story is sure to help your child drift off to a peaceful sleep with
charming images of singing toads, dancing fireflies and other creatures that come out to play when the sun goes down.

TCM Review Says:

"Has your young child ever wondered about those noises in the night, or about those creatures that come out to play only at night?

Other creatures of the night mentioned in the book include the owl, field mice, crickets, frogs, fireflies, coyote, opossum, and muskrats.

The rhymes are delightful and the illustrations beautiful, with a serene, peaceful quality to them, bringing to life the magic of the night and its creatures. It is the kind of book young children will want to listen to in bed at night many times, if only to look at the lovely images of the animals.

A book that both teaches and stimulates young children--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¬--†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚¢'‚'‚¬Ã…¾--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¢s imagination, Creatures of the Night is a keeper, and well-worth its hardcover price."
