Grandfather Twilight, by Barbara Berger
About: A slow, very peaceful story that poetically describes the slow change from end of day to beginning of night, sometimes with words and sometimes just with pictures. The illustrations are magical, with house, forest, stream, ocean and sky blending and shifting. This was often one of our bedtime books, beloved by Kids 2-5. It’s got a few flaws in the science, but if you consider it poetry and metaphor you’re fine.
- Describes the change from day to night
- Metaphor for the settling and going to sleep process
- Peaceful and poetic
- Beautiful illustrations
- Encourages stillness, listening, looking, just being present.
