From the publisher:

What do animals do at night?

For humans, the setting sun marks the end of the day and signals to us that it’s time to go to sleep. But while people are quietly dreaming in their beds, there’s a whole world of animals that’s just waking up! Who are they, what do they do until morning, and how do they move, see, and hunt in the dark?

Find out the answers to these questions and more in this book! With special glow-in-the-dark surprises, unlock the mysteries of the dark and discover the amazing world of night animals.

Features glow-in-the-dark content on all 32 pages!


Animals at Night, written by Anne Jankeliowitch and illustrated by Delphine Chedru, takes a unique look at nocturnal animals. Packed with interesting facts and engaging illustrations, this book will have little ones begging to read it again and again. With the glow-in-the-dark content, this is especially perfect for reading at bedtime with a flashlight. For those who enjoy camping, this is a great book to pack and read around the campfire.

Children and adults are sure to learn something about animals that come out at night. Highly recommended for children ages 3 and up. The little ones might not have the attention span for all the text, but they will love looking at the pictures and hearing a sentence or two about each animal. Older children and independent readers will likely enjoy taking their time and reading every passage. Lots of fun for everyone!

Thank you to Net Galley and Sourcebooks Jabberwocky for a reading copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
