by | Read by Myra Lucretia Taylor

Children Ages 4-6 • 15 mins. • Unabridged • © 2011

Nature poet Joyce Sidman piques children’s curiosity about the dark with this collection. Myra Taylor narrates with enthusiasm and curiosity about each topic. For creatures as diverse as a newt, a porcupette, and a primrose moth, the author provides a poetic vignette followed by an informational one. How many ways does a raccoon use his hands? What thing “anchors” the earth and also “touches” the sky? Who are the night weavers? Why might a creature prefer nighttime? Taylor varies her poetic voice and her informational one: The first is animated in character and offers pauses for contemplation; the second is matter-of-fact and speedy. A listening treat!
