Outside the USA, see our international sales information. University of Chicago Press: E. This is a beautiful book, perfect for a summer pajama story time. I knew this author would be looking at the world with new eyes, shaping what he sees with word descriptions akin to poetry. Ari Berk's technique in this story has a silence about it; a soft hush in the conversations between the bat mother and her child, the rustle of wings through night air, in the song no human ear can hear. Ari Berk's words illuminated by the illustrations of Loren Long in Nightsong bring to readers a bat's eye view of the night; how they are able to move with such ease using their unique gift of sense.
This title is one of those books where a single reading will not suffice plus I keep reaching out to touch the pages. Nighttime has never looked so good. Berk's evocatively written narrative is so much about testing one's wings, about venturing out even as we keep the memory of what is safe nestled close to ourselves, that we might return to that safeness when adventure is done.
The whole book is lush and beautiful, the kind of deeply extravagant piece that is an experience unto itself. Even as it casts its own glow, Nightsong reflects the best of children's literature with its enduring themes of exploration and discovery. Whether you read this with your own kiddos, share with extended family or simply dip into it on your own, Nightsong is a treasure you won't want to miss.
Berk's writing is soothing and sweet. It not only takes the complexity out of the technical term, but vividly conveys what it would be like to fly through the dark with very poor eyesight Both eerie and comforting, this lush book not only demystifies a complicated process in science, but helps boost a child's confidence in facing the dark at bedtime. Together these two creators have given us a lovely story which shows the potential high art of the picture book.
Nightsong is an exception. Berk describes this experience in absolutely enchanting magical language, describing the bat singing out into the world, and the world singing its song back to him.
Steve Lake. Published October 2nd by Pocket Books first published September 1st Return to Book Page. First Sunday only in June, July and August. Titled "Nightsong" it involves a long lost love message from the dead, proving that perhaps the message of love and communication may be possible with lost loved ones. Everything is connected and all life depends on plants.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who knows children who appreciate the wondrous, or any of we adults who respect the same. It's dark, the pictures are intimate and understated, and the tone is almost reverential. Fu Inle.
