As twilight deepens, so does the bond between a little boy and his daddy.
After getting home for the day and having dinner, a young boy is ready for some special time outside with his father.
It's the Magic Hour, when the sun is going down and day meets night. As Daddy and son walk to the playground for some lively fun, they see their neighbors going through their evening rituals—watering plants, walking dogs, going for a run. As darkness sets in, Daddy and son quiet down and find fireflies, then make their way home to Mommy and bedtime.
Gentle art with a soft color palette perfectly complements the text and captures the in-between time of day. Dads and kids will love this sweet celebration of time spent together.
A boy cherishes the twilight stroll he takes with his father through their neighborhood to the park. After a frenzied dinner with his mom, dad, and baby sibling (the boy's father has to tell him to "Stop bothering the cat and come to the table. Now"), the two embark on what is clearly their nightly ritual. Rich's artwork has a velvety texture that contrasts with inky cross-hatching. Snapshot-like panels separated by smudgy black margins show the moment-by-moment progression of their excursion, as the two encounter joggers, neighbors watering plants, and dogs and their walkers. In the park they play tic-tac-toe with sticks and ride on playground swings. As the evening gets darker, the scenes broaden into full-bleed spreads that focus on the special moments that the boy and his father share in the park, surrounded by fireflies. A bedtime kiss from the boy's mother concludes this tender outing. Ages 3 6.
