The Night Is for Darkness
The Night Is for Darkness describes nighttime as a multitude of things. It’s beautifully mysterious and full of creatures of all sorts — some seen and some delicately hidden amongst the shadows. Night is for traveling by streetlight and for discovering the vast unknown. It’s for stories by candlelight and special bedtime kisses. The night is for long kept secrets and heartfelt prayers. It’s for restful sleeping and entering the land of dreaming. All these things make nighttime a unique and sacred time of adventure and restoration.
Written in prose, this is a lovely bedtime story for young children. It’s written at approximately a second grade level, but will likely be enjoyed by children as young as three or four. It contains many of the things youngsters hold dear — animals in the midst of the forests and among the enormity of the skies, read aloud tales illuminated by bright candlelight, and treasurable time with loved ones. Children will be drawn to the illustrations throughout this sweet story. They’re filled with dark, nighttime hues and lively, nocturnal critters. They are plentiful and add richness to the text. The brevity and content of this original picture book make it an ideal pick for a bedtime treat.
