Charlotte Zolotow

"Why does the day have to end?"
So night can begin."
Nothing ends,"
It begins in another place or in a different way."

This beautifully revised and illustrated version of Zolotow's 1962 Picture Book is not just a bedtime story, but also a science lesson.

It is a wonderful dialogue about renewal and new beginnings, reassuring and affirming the cycle of life.

How wonderful to read a story to our children only to again feel that same awe about the universe.

Highly recommend.
