PreSchool-After playing all day in their forest home, a bear and a rabbit decide to find out what happens there at night. The friends' adventure includes shadow dancing by moonlight, seeing raccoons, and being frightened by the noises of bats and owls, until finally a group of friendly fireflies leads them to Magic Hill, where they can look up at the stars and fall asleep. "Staying up late was an adventure," decides Boo, "but nighttime is better for sleeping." With bright, jewel-toned, watercolor-and-pencil illustrations, and two winning (if interchangeable) protagonists, this story hits all the right notes for preschoolers. A fun way to teach about animals of the night or to address questions about what happens after kids go to bed, this tale is a natural purchase for any picture-book collection.Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia
