At Night by Helga Bansch - ADVISABLE

Bansch, Helga At Night. PICTURE BOOK. Eerdmans Books for Young Readers (Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing), 2016 $14.00. 

At Night all the animals prepare for sleep and snuggle into their homes for peaceful dreams.  Even little Manu sleeps under his cozy covers.  As the moon begins to wax and the new moon is born, the animals get a little mixed up. 

This beautifully illustrated book allows children to interact with it in a unique way.  As the moon goes through it's phases and finally becomes a new moon, the book is flipped over and the animals get all jumbled up in where they sleep.  Rabbit dangles from a bats cave and polar bear is asleep in the doghouse.  Children will love the way the story changes and requires them to turn the book upside down to discover where all the animals now lay their heads.
