Shadow's Nighttime Adventure is a delightful story of Shadow the cat and all of the exploring that he does at night. Shadow really liked to walk at night. his neighborhood was easy to explore and Shadow's favorite activity was walking on the roofs of houses. Sometimes Shadow would get caught in the rain. Shadow always knew when to watch for cars and he would lie very still until the cars passed by. The fireflies always were a curiosity to Shadow. Shadow took time to admire all of the stars before he completed his nightly walk.

The text is written in rhymes for a fun language activity as you read to your infant or or toddler. A splash of color with red stars, a red moon, and Shadow's eyes add to the dark illustrations that showcase the night. Shadow is also illustrated in a soft, velvety material for touching.

Board Books in Infant/Toddler Classrooms

I taught in an infant/toddler classroom for a few years toward the end of my career. I found board books to be a favorite with both babies and toddlers. I always had a low bookshelf in my classroom so that even the infants who were crawling could reach the books. Board books are made of sturdy cardboard for infants and toddlers and are virtually indestructable. Toddlers like to carry books around and this encourages their interest in books and reading. Publishers are now publishing board books in a variety of subjects and board books are also now available in this form for most classical books that older children read. They make the introduction to readin easily accessible for babies and toddlers.

Teachers/caregivers in infant and toddler classrooms will find a wealth of board books for their little students.
