“Night’s Nice” explores all of the wonders of night. From the first star that appears, to fireflies, to bright city lights, this reissued bedtime classic will be sure to lull your little ones to sleep.
Max: “Moon cut out on cover!”
Max: “Wish on star at night!”
Cayden: “We did that a couple of times, didn’t we Max?”
Cayden: “Our favorite lights at night are Christmas lights. Max and I like when we get to drive around and look at them. I like city lights too. This is a good book about night and lights and animals.”
Max: “I like the scary things!” (the part about Halloween night)
I had never actually heard of “Night’s Nice” until just now. I was unaware that the story is a reissue until I read it on the back cover, but I can see why it was brought back! It is a wonderful bedtime book for children. The words are very relaxing and soothing and would be the perfect last book to read as you tuck your children into bed. “Night’s Nice” by Barbara and Ed Emberley would be a great book for any young child, especially for those whose parents grew up with the original.
