Twilight Chant by Holly Thompson - OPTIONAL

Thompson, Holly Twilight Chant, illustrated by Jen Betton.  PICTURE BOOK.  Clarion (Houghton), 2018.  18.  9780544586482.

What happens when twilight arrives?  People head for home, animals start to ready for bed, or head to graze and wander before heading home.  Thompson explores all kinds of happenings during the short time between day and night.

With a slight editing change I would have loved this much more.  The chant part of the chant doesn’t quite fit, because the rhythm doesn’t match from page to page.  I do love the beautiful purple illustrations.  Maybe go for The Blue Hour by IsabelleSimler.  I was hoping they could be companions.
