The night animals are all afriad, but of what?  If you are afraid of the dark this story lets you know you are not the only one.  It is a  great  read aloud..

Baby Porcupette

Author: Joyce Sidman

No wonder this book was a Newbery honor..... It's the best of many worlds.  Poems about night in the forest, great woodcut illustrations, and sidebars filled with tidbits of science to impress every reader.  My favorite is "I Am a Baby Porcupette"..... delightful!  Thinking about using it next summer when our reading program is about the night.
