I love this book! Where Are the Night Animals? is an excellent example of how an informational picturebook can be very interesting. This whole book takes place during one night. A coyote, skunk, barn owl, opossum, raccoon, tree frog, brown bat, and harvest mice emerge and go about their business during the night. This book contains almost all narrative text and weaves information about different animals' habitats and food sources into the story. Detailed, realistic-looking pictures cover every page, too, which is lovely. I think this book is appropriate for a read-aloud book in kindergarten. Maybe first graders and definitely second and third graders could read this book to themselves and enjoy it. ( )

Fraser introduces young readers to the nocturnal animals that wake up after they go to bed. Scope is limited to North American animals that students are likely to encounter. Back matter shows where these animals might sleep or hide during the day. ( )
