Dark on light / Dianne White ; illustrated by Felicita Sala.

White, Dianne, (author.). Sala, Felicita, (illustrator.).


As the sun sets, three siblings discover nature's nighttime beauty in this soothingly rhythmic and gorgeously illustrated bedtime picture book from the acclaimed author-illustrator team behind Green on Green.Gentle the evening. Sweeping the skies.Dark the shadows as twilight arrives.Rose the horizon, gleaming and bright.Twilight and evening and dark on light.When the family dog trots away from the house at sunset, three siblings tumble out the door to go find him. Soon they find themselves immersed in the luminous colors, shades, and shadows of nature at night-both dark and light. They wander through moonlit lavender meadows, past a timid fawn, beneath a snowy white owl, and much, much more as the night deepens until, at last, they find their sneaky pup.With beautiful illustrations by Felicita Sala and lyrical text by Dianne White that's perfect for reading aloud, this book invites young readers to step into the wondrous, colorful nighttime natural world.
