Fox Explores the Night: A First Science Storybook

author: Martin Jenkins
illustrator: Richard Smythe

When the sun dips down, Fox emerges from her den to hunt—and explore a world composed of both darkness and light. Budding scientists will delight in following Fox’s journey through the nightscape and noting how it is illuminated in different ways by street lamps, flames, and the moon. See the world—and how it changes with the hour—through Fox’s eyes as shadows stretch along alleyways and reflections bounce off store windows. Using simple, clear language and beautiful illustrations, this stylish and simple primer to light and dark will educate and delight during story time.

“An intriguing visual representation of a beginning science theme.” —Kirkus Reviews
