Pages: 34
Recommended Ages: Read Aloud
Star Rating: ★★★★★

Okay, so this book is half brilliant. It isn’t a story – instead it is two little narratives in one book. It was printed so that when you finish the first part, you flip the book upside down to read the second part. In the first part, ‘Forest Bright, we see illustrations of the forest animals that come out during the day as well as the secret sleeping places of the nocturnal animals. When we flip the book over to Forest Night, each page is a reverse of the pages in Forest Bright. The animals that were asleep in Forest Bright are now awake in Forest Night, and the animals which were active in Forest Bright now have their own sleeping places in Forest Night.

Conclusion. Children will love looking for the different animals on each page.
