Nice book to learn about nocturnal animals. ( )
NIGHT IN THE COUNTRY is one of those perfect kid's books that adults love to see and read.
It would rate the full 5 Stars if a new edition shows the dog to be in a large fenced area or sleeping on the porch
rather than chained...
I enjoy the works of Cynthia Rylant, and this most recent one I've read is a favorite. Her clear, beautiful images are poetic. She depicts the dark night of the country, the smells, and the sounds of those who inhabit the beauty. The lovely dark night, so black and beautiful it feels like light will never arrive. There was the clear sound of the blackness, and of frogs as they sang reek, reek, reek when their haunting noise surrounded the sky.
This book brought back childhood memories of the summer when my family lived in the country. There was a large corn field across the street, and down the road, there was the sound of a creek under the small road. My dog, named Patches, ran along side my bike wherever I went. My friend lived a half mile away, and at night when I peddled my bike from her house to mine, I was very much afraid. Everything seemed pitch black. When a train was heard way down the tracks, it gave an echoing, frightening, haunting sound that brought scary thoughts.
There were only a few people my age and that of my sister. We bonded with them and visited their houses down the lane. Periodically, we slept outside, blankets of the ground. And, in the morning we were covered with itchy mosquito bites, as we collected the blankets wet from the dew on the ground.
If you listen closely, Rylant reminded me of the sound of the screen door closing, , leading me to wonder who was up so late. And when the apple falls from the tree, one can almost hear the plop as it hits the ground, waiting for the bunny rabbit to eat it.
And as the farm animals sleep softly, the sun rises gently in the sky leaving lovely streaks of red, yellow, blue, and orange as the colors meet the green grass.
There's really nothing like it -- A night in the country. It is forever remembered and held in our memories, even as we grow to adults. We will always remember that specialness of the beautiful night sounds.
Once again, Rylant paints beautiful images with clear, soft words.
This is a beautifully illustrated book, a very descriptive book that talks about what goes on during the nighttime in the country
Text and illustrations describe the sights and sounds of nighttime in the country.
