NIGHTSONG by Ari Berk

Posted on Updated on

When the time comes for little Chiro the bat to fly out into the world in search of food on his own, he is afraid.  How will he see in the dark?  But his mother encourages him to “use his good sense” and sing his song.  If he does this, the world will become clear to him.  At first when Chiro flies out of his cave, he cannot see a thing.  But once he begins singing, he can see the world as clear as day.

This is an adorable new picture book with entrancing illustrations by Loren Long.  It is slightly long for a preschool storytime, although it may work, depending on the attention span of your group.  It would be great for kids in grades K-2 and as a conversation starter about the five senses and/or echolocation!
