N is for Night and No Place Like Earth – Blogging from A to Z

n

Hi everyone,

Did you have a good weekend? Debbie had an exciting one as she got to go see Hamilton this weekend with her son, Joey at the Fabulous Fox Theatre in St. Louis.

Today we’re celebrating the letter N with two awesome books. The first features a word that is dear to my heart, Earth. In NO PLACE LIKE EARTH by Lori Fettner and illustrated by Michael Fettner, we follow a child’s dream on a journey through space.

The child looks for a place to land while exploring each planet, but some are too hot, some are too cold, and some are just made of liquid and gas. Only planet Earth is just right.

Fun rhyming text introduces children to each planet and basic facts about it. The text is accompanied by stunning images of a rocket traveling through the solar system, interspersed by close up images of each planet in order.

While each planet is amazing in its own way, there is only one we can call home. If parents choose, this can be the start to a conversation about how we can take better care of our planet.

Pick up your copy on Amazon in Kindle or paperback. 

Next up we have SHIMMER: SONGS OF NIGHT by Raven Howell  (Author) and‎ Carina Povarchik (Illustrator).

Love the kitty on the cover here. They’re obviously a fantastic artist as the moon painting this awesome NIGHTtime scene.

For a child, the time between sundown and sunup can be an enchanting world of mystery and fun, a time when fairies dance, night creatures creak and hum, and stars reign over all. What are a child’s thoughts when he or she hears the evening’s first cricket, has a sleepover with friends, or looks up at the stars and wonders, “What’s up there?”

Pick up your copy in hardback or paperback on Amazon.

Come back tomorrow when we’ll meet a space explorer called OLLIE and an ORANGUTAN.

See ya,

Adana
