Light Up the Night by Jean Reidy- OPTIONAL

Reidy, Jean.  Chodos-Irvine, Margaret.  Light Up the Night,  40 pgs.  Hyperion Book CH, 2011.  $16.99.  Inside cover:  “When it’s time to sleep, it’s nice to know there’s a place that’s safe.  In a cozy house, in a comfy bed, under a blanket that’s white and red, under stars so bright they light up the night, in your own little piece of the universe.”  This is a fun bedtime story that explores the world in which we live.  The illustrations are great. This book is a lot like “The Bag I’m Taking to Grandma’s” by Shirley Neitzel in the fact that it has cumulative verses.  Students will enjoy reading aloud the story as they remember prior pages and verses.  Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  OPTIONAL.  Reviewer: SL.
