Summary: A mother and child travel through the night, walking, boating, and swimming to observe bioluminescence in many different forms. The pages are all in black, making the colors glow brightly. Each page has a single phrase or sentence in a larger font, then a few sentences in smaller print that give additional information. A sense of wonder is conveyed in the last few pages, sharing the information that many life forms have yet to be discovered, and encouraging readers to look closely at the world around them. 44 pages; ages 4-10.
Pros: A beautiful introduction to bioluminescence that will encourage kids to look for other wonders in the world as well. The illustrations are striking and there is plenty of interesting information.
Cons: No back matter.
