As we head into October, Daytime Nighttime: All Through the Year has the perfect start to the season:
This stunning picture book for K-3rd grade has art that seems to pop off the page, showing a series of creatures foraging, hunting, and building their homes, during day and night, month by month. A great way to teach the seasons, as well as diurnal and nocturnal differences, Daytime, Nighttime features two creatures per month, guiding us through the year and its seasonal changes with playful rhymes.
If you’re looking for fun learning tools, try the free matching game that accompanies the book, which is also available on our website as a printable download. Or if you’re excited about kid-friendly poetry and riddles, there are two imaginative, age-appropriate activities provided by the author, Diane Lang.
“This small book, besides being a powerhouse of information, carefully leads children to an understanding of how animals live in their natural habitats.” — Catherine Greene, Catholic Library World
