Just in time to put a bow on it, Booklist has released its review of AFTER DARK. Here are some excerpts.
“Each of these poems, written in different styles and meters, profiles a nocturnal animal…. Full-page illustrations featuring shadowy palettes illuminate the words, which appear in a bright white font and pop against the dark backgrounds. Readers will glean a surprising amount of information about each subject, and a final section offers a few additional facts, such as dietary preferences, physical attributes, or details about life cycles. The poems make great read-alouds, and the content makes this suitable for STEAM applications.”
No reader reviews posted yet but I hope to see them start before long.
