The Longest, Darkest Night!
$2.95 – $12.95
It is the rarest of all nights: a total eclipse of the Moon on Winter Solstice. Some forest creatures are more than a little frightened. Luckily, they live near kindly Grampa Cedar, a wise old storyteller who has seen it all before. Weaving the magic and mystery of nature with reassuring science, he guides his nocturnal neighbors — Brother Fox, Mrs. Owl, Young Weasel, Madam Opossum and Mr. Raccoon — through a night they’ll remember forever!
The Longest, Darkest Night! is an illustrated children’s story about the wonders of nature, celestial cycles and the “humanness” of animals. Fear of the dark and the unknown, collaboration, generosity and the wisdom of elders are underlying themes in this modern fable. The story is an inclusive and action-packed reading experience, with rich images and sing-along interactivity that offer even more personal engagement. Extensive back matter includes scientific notes, thumbnail backgrounds for each character, a book list and coloring pages. The delightful illustrations include recognizable representations of animals, trees and events on Earth and in the sky.
For ages 4 and up (pre-k through grade 3).
