Staff Reviews

Night Walk and The Golden Glow are two of my favorite illustrated books about nature for children...and that says a lot because there are so many great ones in that category! The images of Night Walk will resonate with readers of all ages and pull them in the type of magic we can experience when immersed in the natural world. The Golden Glow has great characters and story, as well as a beautiful illustration to reward the reader at the end. Best of all, both books make you want to get outside!...a great quality for summer reading.

Description

An award-winning picture book about a family's midnight adventure - a contemporary Owl Moon.

A 2021 New York Times/New York Public Library Best Illustrated Children's Book which has received starred reviews from Publisher's Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, The Horn Book and Booklist.

Mama opened our bedroom door. "Wake up, you two," she whispered. "Let's go, so we get there on time."

Excited, the sleepy family step outside into a beautiful summer night. The world is quiet and shadowy, filled with fresh smells and amazing sights. Is this what they miss when they're asleep?

Together, they walk out of their sleeping village. What will they find in the dark landscape?

This beautiful and evocative book movingly recalls family trips and the excitement of unknown adventure, while celebrating the awe-inspiring joy of the natural world.
