Each chapter discusses one particular sense. Everything from eyes like an owl, to nose like a deer. Along the way, kids learn how these animals are particularly well adapted to life after the sun goes down. Easy and fun activities are included so kids can explore their own senses after dark and try to sense the world in the same way the wild animals do. There are activities that can be done as individuals as well as groups.
There are suggestions sprinkled throughout the text on how kids can help the species, such as watching for them crossing roads at night, and contributing to various citizen science projects. The appendix of the book has ideas about how kids can make their own contributions, including helping keep skies dark at night, listening for frogs for FrogWatch USA, helping measure firefly populations with an app, and documenting moth sightings.
For the bigger words in the text, there is a handy glossary at the end where kids can look up their meanings. The bibliography lists some excellent resources, should you want to go further and learn more about this fascinating subject.
The dark really isn’t that scary after all. Once you understand it, it becomes a fascinating time where animals conduct their lives. This book will help young readers learn to understand more about nature, and the dark that falls each night will no longer be so scary.
I thank NetGalley and the publisher for the advance reader copy I received in exchange for my honest review.
