The Whole Night Through by David Frampton is a beautifully written and illustrated rhyming book for young lap readers or preschoolers. The woodcut pictures are captivating and full of detail and wonder. The tiger doesn’t want to fall asleep, and he visits all the other creatures in the jungle as “The moon’s sweet lullaby of light falls softly through the jungle night down past the leafy bongo tree.” The rhino, the crocodile and the cockatoo, to name a few, are the beautifully carved images which grace the pages of this book. The color and tones are simply mesmerizing. There are so many interactive elements of this book that can be shared with a child, and can be used for different aspects of early literacy. For example, “How many birds are on this page? Or how many stars do you see?” I think my favorite is the monkey dreaming of bananas. I don’t know why I am just discovering this picture book, but now I hope many more of you will. See this book listed in our catalog
