Nightsong (Simon and Schuster, 2012) by Ari Berk and illustrated by Loren Long is a lovely picture book. The rhythm of the language, the pictures, they meld together to tell a good story of leaving home and coming back again. It shows how a young bat “sees” at night. Each time I read it, I’m left with a smile on my face.
