    I don t tend to gravitate to early readers because they can be awfully boring This book breaks the mold It s fun and engaging, and my son loves reading it I frequently catch him looking through the pages and staring at the pictures He didn t know what nocturnal animals were before he read this book, and now, any time we see an animal, he asks if it is nocturnal The conflict in this book is wonderfully portrayed, and it teaches about the power of friendship and bravery I re...

    I love the Nocturnals On the bigger kid side there are some multimedia interaction that can be done with the books put out for them, you can see some of those books reviewed here with at least one to come But today I have one for the younger children, The Slithery Shakedown, where our trio of friends, Bismark the sugar glider, Dawn the red fox, and Tobin the pangolin are meeting up for a evening adventure when the blue bellied snake bully shows up to make trouble I love these book because no matter what happens they all work together to come up with a viable solution, one that children will understand, and in these younger children books it also explains feelings that might have been experienced during these times and how it is really ok to experience these feelings, for instance you can be brave and scared at the same time Author Tracey Hecht really is in tune with her audience whether it be middle graders, or the younger children just learning to read, and her illustrators are...

    Copy provided by Young Adult Books CentralIn this sequel to The Midnight Meeting, we rejoin Bismark the sugar glider, Tobin the pangolin and Dawn the fox Bismark is waiting for his friends, who are late to arrive, and plans to lead them on an exciting nocturnal adventure The plan runs into trouble when the group runs into a snake and Bismark, who has spent a lot of time claiming to be brave, is very afraid He thinks the snake is going to eat him, and he is probably right If the friends band together, will they be able to make the snake bully turn tail This beginning reader does a good job of addressing the idea of being afraid and being brave, which are not necessarily the same thing Bismark always talks a good game, but needs his friends know what he is like, and like him no matter what The message that bullies may be easily defeated is an interesting one, but ...

    Another winner from Tracey Hecht I love this series for young readers The vocabulary words aren t to challenging for the age 4 6 , they are easily understood by context, the illustrations are bold and colorful with lots of detail, but not so much as to overwhelm I like that in addition to the story, there is an additional section at the end of the book to further encourage reading about nocturnal animals I also like that the books...

    The characters from The Nocturnals continue to migrate into readers for younger children Dawn, Tobin, and the vastly amusing Bismark first appeared in The Moonlight Meeting and now their adventures continue in The Slithery Shakedown Bismark impatiently waits for his friends to join him, but when they do an unwanted creature also appears A shimmery blue snake decides that a silly sugar glider would make a lovely breakfast Luckily for Bismark, his friends stand up to the hungry reptile.The illustrations make the characters come to life Some show Bismark tapping his foot or with steam coming out of his ears in impatience Tobin and Dawn look at his antics with knowing smiles And when the snake appears, Tobin hides behind Dawn with his arms wrapped around her leg and his body shivering in fear.Back matter includes a picture and short description of the nocturnal animal species from the story There are also some facts about pomelos and nocturnal animals...
