The Way Home in the Night by Akiko Miyakoshi- ADVISABLE

Miyakoshi, Akiko The Way Home in the Night.  PICTURE BOOK. Kids Can Press, Limited, 2017. $16.95.  Content: G. 

Little Bunny’s mother carries him home each night through the quiet streets.  As Little Bunny ponders the sights and sounds of the neighborhood, he smells someone baking a pie, someone watching TV, someone having a party, someone saying goodbye.  His father soon joins them and Little Bunny looks forward to being tucked into bed.  While falling asleep he wonders what other people in the city are doing at that time.  Is the pie ready to eat? Was the party over? No matter the event, every night, we all go home to bed.  

The illustrations in this picture book are amazing!  The detail is incredible and draws the reader into each page.  The text is simple and sweet. 

Pre-K.  EL (K-3). ADVISABLE.  Reviewer: SL
