Little ones learn to mimic the music of the night.

The nocturnal creatures that chirp and sniff all night long are given the spotlight in this lift-the-flap board book. Each double-page spread depicts an evening scene, progressing later into the night as the book proceeds, and features a flap on the right-hand page and a prodding hint on the left. For example, "Who's that beside the flowerpot?" readers are asked, and upon lifting the large flap, they discover "It's a busy mouse!! Squeak! Squeak!!" Other animals featured include an owl, a fox, a squirrel, and a snoring rabbit with her kits. Each animal is given a distinct sound, and readers are encouraged to make the noise too. The flaps are large and sturdy, so even the smallest hands will be able to discover the charming creatures. The board book is handsomely bound, with thick, high-quality pages found within. This is a book that's built to last.

An excellent read for babies beginning to develop their voices.

(Board book. 1-3)
