A companion to the beloved tabbed board book Haiku Baby—this one celebrating the wonders of nighttime!
wide awake at night
two eyes shining warm and bright—
hello, little owl
Just as she did in Haiku Baby, Betsy Snyder celebrates special moments in nature with the traditional Japanese poetic form. The sights and sounds of night—a firefly, a star, a cricket, a bat, a raccoon, and an owl—are joyfully captured in just 17 syllables each. This peaceful little board book has tabs to encourage little hands to turn the pages, and adorable artwork to delight children and parents alike! Betsy Snyder's distinguished books for toddlers and babies have received numerous awards and accolades, and are beloved by parents everywhere.
