About The Book:
Nine great things happen when the sun sets for the evening. Each page includes a statement about what is happening and then some fun facts and information about that event. Written from a Christian perspective, the story describes how God made things when He created the Earth. While the story was written specifically for ages 3-8, children of all ages will enjoy this book. Even adults can admire the beautiful watercolor artwork.
I like how the author created this book. She started out with Nathan learning something specific about the night. Then the reader learns more about that specific "something". Along with the details, there's a scripture included that fits the topic.
I know that the ages from the publisher say it would be good for a 3 yr old, but maybe only with the pictures and the scripture. The details given with the event are definitely more for an older child. I would say it's more educational and is great information for someone to learn something new.
For example, Nathan learns that crickets chirp at night. The reader also learns that the male crickets rub their wings together for various different reasons (which are listed). And the scripture reference to go along with the crickets is Job 35:10 "God, my maker, gives us songs in the night." So, you can see that this book is pefect for a wide range of ages!
