First I'll say that I'm a fan of the dark. I've always loved the contrast of artificial lights against the night sky. And black is my favorite color. So this book was visually appealing to me. It's beautifully done and the photographs are stunning. The author was kind enough to send me a signed hardcover copy.
Oh! The Things You Can See in the Dark is an interesting fact-filled book for older children and adults, but also has a passage on each page for little kids. I read both to my son. We enjoyed answering each page's questions together. The interaction was fun and a different pace for our bedtime story.
I encourage you to pick up a copy of this book. It's a beautiful work of art. It looks great on my coffee table.
Oh! The Things You Can See In The Dark received an Honorable Mention from the New York and San Francisco Book Festival Award competitions.
