A lullaby for sweeter dreams

Cover of In the Night Garden
A review of In the Night Garden by Carin Berger

Follow the hush and magic In the Night Garden by Carin Berger. Blue, green, and black illustrations invite us in with the glow of fireflies and a sprinkling of stars. A quiet cat walks through each page and “tiptoes across the roof”. We experience the sights and sounds of the garden through the seasons. A swirling of wind blowing, bullfrog melodies, murmurings of a stream, and calls from an “occasional hoot owl.” The book feels both dreamy and earthy – filled with all sorts of natural plant and animal life. This is a perfect book for bedtime and feels a little like a homespun lullaby. Read this with little ones who need a quiet or calming story.

If you like this one, explore other books by Carin Berger, such as: All of Us, Behold the Bold Umbrellaphant, or Forever Friends.
