See the jaguar prowling the Amazon rain forest, spot the lion pride on the African savanna, and visit a turtle nesting beach under the stars. Then, turn off the lights to see the ocean creatures glow on the 24” × 11.5” tear-out poster. (Be sure to charge it in the light first.)
Each spread features an enchanting illustration of a different nighttime habitat animated by a description of the activities of its various creatures, told in lulling prose. Fact boxes call out the names of the different animals and their unique qualities. Learn about the rain forest mammals called kinkajous, who slurp flower nectar by night and nest in tree hollows by day, and the rare and mysterious night parrots, who emerge after sunset in the Australian outback to feed on the seeds of spinifex bushes, among many other amazing nocturnal creatures.
The wonderful starlit habitats you’ll explore:
- Rain forest
- Australian outback
- Mangrove forest
- Coral reef
