'The Way Home in the Night' by Akiko Miyakoshi is one of those rare, beautiful going to bed books for the little ones. I loved the mood it evokes of night in the city.
A mother rabbit is carrying her young bunny home through the darkening streets of the city. They see a bookstore closing for the day, and lights from a television flickering in a window. They smell a pie being baked and see a party. Young bunny thinks about all these things as sleep descends, as well as people saying goodbye and taking lonely train rides home.
I was drawn to this book by the beautiful art on the cover and the book is full of the same thing. The mood is quiet and peaceful, but has a range of emotions in the stories that are shown. Little bunny is quiet and sleepy. This is a top notch book for bedtime reading.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Kids Can Press and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this phenomenal children's book.
