Lang has lovely poetic language that tells of animals and the world and how everything is connected. The illustrations of Stephanie Laberis tie it together. They show the habitats of the animals simplistically but still detailed enough so you know what to look for outside. Even in the places that you cannot look at, like deep in the ponds and oceans. Perfect colors make this a pleasant read to the eyes as well ears. The round-up at the end gives you more science of the animals (such as what class means) as well as more environmental issues and places you can learn more about helping animals. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Joyce Hesselberth created a story of a cat that puts their family to bed then goes out on their nightly adventures. They explore, climb their tree, make sure that the town looks right from the construction site of the new highest building in town. Along the way, Hesselberth shows you maps of the town, Sam, the earth, the universe and even a dream. The illustrations are simple but have the perfect amount of detail. They are colorful without it becoming overwhelming. They give you a look at Sam’s world that mirrors our own (Sam might have a tail, but the map of the cat allows you to show that we both have livers, hearts, lungs and more). At the end there is a round-up of the different maps you see in the book. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
