Title: Where are the Night Animals Author: Mary Ann Fraser Illustrator: Mary Ann Fraser Publisher: New York; Harper Collins Publishers
Genre: Information Level: Beginner Number of pages: 29 Pub. Date: 1999
This book talks about different animals that come out at night. It talks about nocturnal animals and how they have adapted to make living at life at night. These include night vision, echolocation, camouflage and where they live.
This book is accurate and does not discriminate any topic. There is an index in the back of the book. The good thing about this information book is that even though it is non-fiction and intellectual it reads easily which is useful for young children.
I thought that the best part of the book was the part where the baby in the house and the animal outside see each other and they switch, the baby awake and the animal asleep. Also the games at the end of the book are fun and incorporate what the students read about in the book.
After: This was in the back of the book but I thought it was a clever idea. Students will play hide and seek in the dark. This shows students what it’s like to be a nocturnal animal hunting.
