The Twilight Library

We rated this book:


As the sun escapes the horizon, the creatures of the night stir awake. They respond to the call of the Night Librarian, as some scramble across the forest landscape, while others soar through the velvety sky. They gather inside the Twilight Library, surrounded by books and an ambience of anticipation. When the Night Librarian descends from his resting place, he spins a story of gorgeous sunsets, tasty treats, and all the love and comfort a heart can hold. This magical land becomes a reality, if only in their imaginations. Soon, they return home to fall into dreamlands of their own.

Young children ages five to nine will cherish this exquisitely illustrated picture book. The storyline is unique and the characters are precious, many of whom possess human-like features. An elderly spider fills the lead role.

The Twilight Library is full of rich figurative language: similes, personification, imagery, onomatopoeia, and more. Early elementary school educators will find it a wonderful resource for introducing these literary elements to students. Additionally, a number of them will be able to read it independently. The reading level is approximately second to third grade.
