Review: Animals At Night

The sun sets at the end of another day, but have you ever wondered what happens after dark? 

This beautifully illustrated book shows different parts of the world and the animals that come out after dark. 

This is so much more than a picture book; it really is an introduction to animals and their homes.

Author Katy Flint has written this book with younger readers in mind who are just learning about animals. 

It features an overview of the selected area and provides pockets of information about the animals and their habitats.

Discover information about jaguars in South American rainforests, kangaroos in the Australian outback and lions in the Savannah. Each area focuses on animals, but also plants and the surrounding area. The brightly detailed illustrations by Cornelia Li encourage children to pick objects out that they recognise assisting in their understanding and knowledge.

Other areas include coral reefs, mountains, the arctic, mangroves, deserts, woodlands, the beach and the city. Each area is explored in an easy conversationalist manner. The young reader will enjoy discovering the variety of animals and learning about the areas themselves and how it all fits together.

One of the highlights of the book, is the fold out poster of the ocean that glows in the dark – it provides an interactive experience and will become a talking point.
