Daylight Starlight Wildlife by Wendell Minor -- ESSENTIAL

Minor, Wendell Daylight Starlight Wildlife. PICTURE BOOK. Nancy Paulsen Books (Penguin Group USA), 2015. $17.99. Content: G.

In this study of animal habits, pages depicting diurnal creatures are interspersed with those showing nocturnal ones. Accompanying text explains more about each animal, as does a "Fun Facts" section at the end. The text is nicely worded, and the information is helpful, but it's the breathtaking illustrations that really make this book stand out. Would work especially well as an accompaniment to a science class lesson on diurnal/nocturnal wildlife or an art class lesson on drawing animals.

Pre-K, EL (K-3) -- ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: Caryn
