hardback ISBN 13: 9780547577692 | ISBN 10: 0547577699
A Caldecott Medal–winning bedtime classic, available in a board book edition for the first time.
Susan Marie Swanson’s elegant prose and Beth Krommes’s spectacular illustrations open up a nighttime world where ordinary objects become beautifully illuminated. Images of a key, a toy, a bear, and a book leap from the pages as we’re reminded that even when night arrives, the sun’s warm light never truly leaves us.
A spare, patterned text and glowing pictures explore the origins of light that make a house a home in this bedtime book for young children. Naming nighttime things that are both comforting and intriguing to preschoolers — a key, a bed, the moon — this timeless book illuminates a reassuring order to the universe.
