Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2—This gorgeous picture book provides a look at animals that are active during the day (diurnal), those who come out at night (nocturnal), and a few that appear at sunrise or twilight (crepuscular). Minor relies on simple, lyrical text ("Speedy gray squirrel scurries all day in search of acorns to store for winter.") and stunning, full-color paintings to share characteristics of each creature, as he takes readers from day to night and back again. Many of the critters will be familiar to children (rabbit, deer, skunk), while several are lesser known (opossum, flying squirrel, luna moth). The use of comparisons and contrasts will be especially helpful in classroom settings, but browsers will also be attracted by the appealing, realistic illustrations. There are two pages of "Fun Facts" appended, which include thumbnail illustrations of the 22 animals, along with some interesting additional information for the most curious. VERDICT This lovely title should find a spot in all collections and will likely inspire greater outdoor observation and appreciation.—Sara-Jo Lupo Sites, George F. Johnson Memorial Library, Endicott, NY

Review

* “Gorgeous. . . . Minor relies on simple, lyrical text and stunning, full-color paintings to share characteristics of each creature, as he takes readers from day to night and back again. Many of the critters will be familiar to children, while several are lesser known. . . . Appealing, realistic illustrations. There are two pages of “Fun Facts” . . . with some interesting additional information for the most curious. This lovely title should find a spot in all collections and will likely inspire greater outdoor observation and appreciation.”—School Library Journal, starred review

“An album of contrasts. . . . The attraction of this invitation to explore daytime and nighttime worlds is visual: appealing gouache-and-watercolor animal portraits display Minor’s characteristic use of light and color, meticulous detail, and appreciation for nature. . . . For storytime or laptime, another beautiful rendition of the natural world.”—
Kirkus Reviews
 
“Minor’s bucolic imagery suggests abundant space for humans and wildlife alike, and even if this green world is not an everyday reality for all readers, Minor’s gentle scenes will draw them in.”—
Publishers Weekly

“In his signature representational artistic style—detailed, luminous, and pristine—Minor compares and contrasts diurnal and nocturnal animals.”—
The Horn Book
Always the perfect gift

Wendell Minor is the author and/or illustrator of nearly fifty award winning books for children. He has collaborated with many accomplished authors, among them Newbery Award winning naturalist Jean Craighead George, Charlotte Zolotow, Mary Higgins Clark, Robert Burleigh and astronaut Buzz Aldrin. Several of his books, including two with Buzz Aldrin – Reaching for the Moon and Look to the Stars, and Mary Higgins Clark's Ghost Ship - were New York Times bestsellers.

In addition to children’s books, his illustrations and design have enhanced over 2000 works, including the covers of David McCullough’s Truman, John Adams and 1776, Pat Conroy’s The Prince of Tides and South of Broad, and To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.

Wendell’s paintings have been widely exhibited, and can be found in the permanent collections of the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA, the Library of Congress in Washington DC and the New Britain Museum of American Art in CT, to name just a few.

Wendell’s collaboration with his wife Florence, If You Were a Penguin, was the 2009 selection for Pennsylvania’s One Book, Every Young Child early literacy program. He and Florence live and work in Connecticut. www.minorart.com
