The book talks about how the city never sleeps at night. How there is always something that is going on no matter what the time is.

I think that this book is really neat because it talks about jobs that occur at night when we are sleeping. Most children do not realize that some people work at night. This is a very good book to display just that.

This book has great illustrations of a city at Night. The book tells a story of a city at night and how it never goes asleep. Kids often wonder what happens when they go to sleep, if everyone is sleeping to. In a city there is always something happening at every hour. ( )

Monica Wellington chronicles the nighttime goings-on of a bustling metropolis in this bold and vibrant nonfiction picture book. Each nighttime hour reveals a new scene, some lively and some quiet. At seven o'clock, ballet dancers warm up for a performance. At midnight, a guard makes his rounds at the art museum. Near dawn, truckers deliver their fruits and vegetables to the city's markets. Monica Wellington, well known for her brilliant, graphic illustrations, has filled these nightscapes with her hallmark vivid colors and surprising details. Views of the city sweep from soaring skylines to silent streets to the interior of an all-night diner. A treat for dreamers and night owls alike, this book shows young readers many nighttime jobs that help keep the city running all day.
