A spare, patterned text and glowing pictures explore the origins of light that make a house a home in this Caldecott Medal-winning bedtime book for young children. Naming nighttime things that are both comforting and intriguing to preschoolers—a key, a bed, the moon—this timeless book illuminates a reassuring order to the universe.
Beth Krommes received the Caldecott Medal in 2009 for “The House in the Night” by Susan Marie Swanson. She has illustrated a number of other highly acclaimed picture books, including “Swirl by Swirl: Spirals in Nature” by Joyce Sidman.
