Review #1426 Nightsong by Ari Berk
Nightsong by Ari Berk, illustrated by Loren Long
Rating: three stars (out of four)
I fell in love with the illustrations! There were a couple of pages with a close-up of the little bat and I couldn't help but think he was the cutest creature I had ever seen. His eyes gleamed and I wanted to keep in my pocket as a pet. He was super cute. I also liked how the illustrations explained bats could use their voice to see what was in front of them by using echolocation. It was neat to see it in a manner children could understand. I did feel slightly afraid when the bat wandered off and I hoped he wouldn't get lost. But everything turned out in the end and he wasn't in any danger. Nightsong was a sweet book and I would recommend.
