The cover for Daytime Nighttime by William Low got my attention right away. It is gorgeously illustrated. I could tell right away that this was a book I wanted to read through. Inside the book sleeve some questions are presented to the reader, and answered.
What do you see in the daytime? Butterflies. Robins. Rabbits.
What do you see at nighttime? Fireflies. Owls, Frogs.
My daughter is at the perfect age for this book, because she loves animals right now. If you have an animal fan too, this is a great one to show them the difference between animals we see during the daytime, and nighttime. It’s actually something I never thought to point out to her that the animals you see at one point of the day just might not be there for her to see later on. I was inspired to start showing her the difference.
The story starts with the questions “What do you see in the daytime?” and in the picture is a little girl walking through a field of flowers. It’s a question a parent would ask their child, and the following pages go through different characters you may see during the daytime and what you may find them doing. Then it’s onto “What do you see at nighttime?” and a whole other group of characters are depicted. I adore how the book ends, and most any child will relate to the ending of this book because many of them go to bed with a certain someone tucked under their arms.
This book has been a great source for teaching different animals to my daughter, and about the different areas she may discover them. She loves to point at the animals and ask what sound they make. If your kids like to do the same, you may have to get creative as their are some unique ones in there. This is a great book to read with your little one at the end of the day, though my daughter loves to pull it out any time of day.
