Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Toddler-PreS—A toddler introduction to the shrouded realm of what goes on after dark. Both urban and forested locations disclose an assortment of nighttime activity. Mail carriers and bakers are busy before dawn. Owls and bats swoop over a pond populated with frogs and fish. The text provides detailed information without overwhelming youngsters. Engaging questions encourage adult readers to make this an active reading experience: "What noise do owls make?" Perera's alluring gouache and pencil illustrations will captivate young ones. Objects are well spaced, so the layout feels full but not busy. Buildings, wildlife, and foliage are depicted with distinction, making this book a favorable tool to teach object identification. A small format issue could momentarily derail adult readers: Some pages feature an awkward placement of text segments, resulting in the text being read out of sequence. The intended audience will not be thwarted, however. VERDICT A gratifying, topical hornbook for toddlers and early preschoolers.—Richelle Rose, Kenton County P.L., KY Copyright 2020 School Library Journal.
