Magic Tree House
Junie B. Jones
The night is full of lights in this warm bedtime story.
Susan Gal tells the story of a child’s evening routine through all the different kinds of lights that shine in the night. From the porch light by the front door, to the firelight (and firefly light!) of a backyard cookout, and the candles on a cake, everything seems to glow in this warm and cozy book. When the lightning of a sudden summer storm sends the action inside, there is light there too—a bedside light to read by, a flashlight to make shadows with, a night-light to keep you company, and the moonlight for sweet dreams.
This reassuring reflection of a child’s world makes a wonderful bedtime story, and would be sure to soothe any lingering fears of the dark. A warm, friendly, shining debut from a very talented new author-illustrator.
