What Color Is Night?

We rated this book:


The night is dark with a sky of black and a moon that is white. Or is it? If one looks closely, there are colors to be seen. The sky is really a very dark blue, with clouds and tree limbs that look black in the night. And the moon, as it rises, is more of a yellow than white, changing as it rises higher and higher. Golden fireflies fill the night sky and a train streaking by shines silver. Yellow street lamps and brown moths and red neon signs and green-eyed night visitors and the soft glow of a moonbow bring more colors to the night. Children sleep and dream colorful dreams.

Author and illustrator Grant Snider has created a very quiet story in his debut picture book that is destined to lull little ones to a quiet state as they prepare to fall asleep. The simple, dark-as-night illustrations emphasize the quietness of the story as readers are carried through the city and out into the country, each place with a night sky, moon, and stars made up of colors of the night. Children will enjoy this book, and adult readers will enjoy the quieting result.
