Here is a beautiful and unique picture book in turn-around format about the concept of day and night. Open the book, and the sun rises to reveal blue skies, crowded barnyards, and bustling streets. Turn the book over, and the moon comes up to the hush of night with its bright stars, hooting owls, and sleeping children. Young audiences will delight in the experience of going from morning to night -- and back again -- in this stunning creation from the Caldecott Honor -- winning author-artist of Have You Seen My Duckling?

About the Author:

Nancy Tafuri's acclaimed picture books for the youngest child include the Caldecott Honor Book Have You Seen My Duckling?; Spots, Feathers, and Curly Tails; I love you, Little One; and In the Snow, written by Sharon Phillips Denslow. She lives with her family in Roxbury, Connecticut.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K. An excellent concept book, similar in quality to the artist's many pastoral picture books. Here, Tafuri uses a "flip-book" technique to show readers similar settings first from the point of view of the sun, and then from that of the moon (or vice versa). She provides a pleasant introduction to many opposites in scenes that will be familiar to a young audience?busy/restful city and country scenes, awake/sleeping animals and children. Details from one picture transform themselves in the opposite, e.g., sunflowers, shown in a sun-drenched field, appear in a brightly lit florist's window, viewed from a dark and quiet city street. A spare and repetitious text reinforces the continuity and contrast of daytime and nighttime experiences. A detached perspective and a panoramic distancing of colored-pencil and watercolor illustrations allow viewers to feel as though they are indeed looking down on the cycles of time.?Tana Elias, Meadowridge Branch Library, Madison, WI
