A stunning bilingual story by award winning author and illustrator Yuyi Morales's Little Night / Nochecita.
"A treasure for bedtime, or anytime." —School Library Journal
As the long day comes to an end, Mother Sky fills a tub with falling stars and calls, "Bath time for Little Night!"
Little Night answers from afar, "Can't come. I am hiding and you have to find me, Mama. Find me now!"
Where could Little Night be? Down a rabbit hole? In a blueberry field? Among the stripes of bees? Exquisitely painted and as gentle as Little Night's dress crocheted from clouds, this is a story to treasure.
With a bilingual text in both English and Spanish, Little Night Nochecita by Yuyi Morales is a sweet story every child can enjoy.
