What Color is Night?

By Grant Snider

"'Look closer, ' this gentle bedtime book encourages. While nighttime might seem to be only black and white, there is color to see everywhere. An orthodontist by day and a cartoonist by night, [Grant Snider] clearly understands the promise that lies on the other side of sunset."The New York Times

"[A]n evocative picture book that urges young viewers to 'look closer' at the night. And though it is the striking art that may rivet a child audience's attention, the text, with its soothing rhythms and strong near-rhymes full of rich long vowels ('road' / 'glow'), is an equal partner."Horn Book Magazine

"Snider helps children (and adults) look beyond the darkness and see the beautiful colors that appear in the night. [What Color is Night?] opens children's eyes and minds to things they don't often think about and offers endless possibilities for exploration."School Library Journal

Look closer. Grant Snider's beautiful debut picture book explores the wonders-and colors-of nighttime. For night is not just black and white. Ending in colors yet unseen, and a night of sweet dreams, this lilting lullaby is sure to comfort those drifting off to sleep. With luminous art as spare and glowing as the moon, and lyrical text that reads like a friend leading the way through the wilderness, What Color Is Night? is a rich and timeless look at a topic of endless fascination, and a perfect bedtime read-aloud.
