Summary:
This nonfiction book discusses animals that live and function primarily in the dark. Some of the animals discussed are the genet, the luna moth, and the blind fish cave. The book is broken up into a few chapters, each of which discusses a different type of animal that lived in the dark, such as those who live in caves, and those who live in the bottom layer of the ocean. It also compares and contrasts how their lives are different from ours and other animals who are not generally nocturnal.

My Personal Reaction:
This book was very informative and would be great for any animal-loving student. I thought there would be various "dry" spots throughout the book, but it truly stayed interesting throughout the entire book. The animated pictures of animals that are very unusual looking in real-life made this book appropriate for even the youngest students.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. Have students choose two animals and create a Venn Diagram showing likenesses and differences between the two.
2. Based on what students know abo ut nocturnal animals, have students create their own animal and make a list of its characteristics.

This is a good informational book that is well illustrated. It describes many different types of night creatures ranging from owls to blind salamanders. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0448448246, Paperback)

Did you know that the luna moth only flutters around at night--or that is has a wingspan as wide as a bowl of soup? This reader is packed with interesting facts about all the creepy animals that we never get to see during the daytime, like the barn owl, the blind cave fish, and the vampire squid.
