PreSchool-Grade 2 The pairing of Rylant and Szilagyi again results in a graceful blend of evocative prose and exquisite color-pencil drawings. Night in the Country explores the sights and sounds of the country's nighttime, from an apple falling to the ground"pump!"to a dog's chain clinking as the animal drinks water. Rich with nuances, the images and sounds evoked by the text have brought forth deeply shadowed drawings by the artist; likewise, the text will conjure up vivid imaginings in the minds of young children. The journey through nighttime fittingly concludes that night animals "will spend a day in the country listening to you." Each page invites children to look, listen and explore. Night in the Country is a welcome addition to that prized collection of rhythmic, soothing nighttime readings. Anne E. Mulherkar, formerly at District of Columbia Public Lib .
