Books of December - Nighttime

It's dark by 5 pm.  The longest night of the year is only two weeks away.  Here are some great books about nightime.

Owl Moon by Jane Yolen won the Caldecott award for the illustrations by John Schoenherr.  This is a quiet look at a winter night and the beauties of nature.  A father shares the night with his daughter as they hope to see an owl. 

Bear Snores On Karma Wilson.  Animals find their way into Bear's cave making more and more noise.  When Bear finally wakes up and wants t join the ensuing party, his friends are fast asleep.

The Snowman by Raymond BriggsWhen a boy invites his snowman into his home, the snowman takes the boy on a night flight over the countryside.  This wordless book has been turned into a popular animated short.  View the full 1982 version of the film with an intro by David Bowie by clicking above.
