Great New Book: Night Light by Nicholas Blechman

Night Light by Nicholas Blechman.  New York, NY:  Scholastic, 2013.

     This fantastic book combines the joy of a guessing game with counting, and every kid’s favorite – vehicles!  On each page a clue is given, “1 Light Shining Bright?”  When you turn the page, a wonderful illustration of a vehicle is shown, in this case a train. Have fun reading this book and playing.  Some of the vehicles are ones you wouldn’t normally think of, which makes the book even more interesting. 

     Night Light is an excellent book to use in a preschool storytime. As you read each page, ask the children if they have any idea what the vehicle could be.  If they don’t, you can give them another clue, like making the sound of the vehicle.  This is an easy way for children to learn problem solving skills as they process the clues.
