We recently got to review an adorable little book for Matter Deep Publishing, and author, Carly Strickland. The book, Sunshine’s Night Out, is a picture book about a hamster who goes on an adventure one night when her cage is left open.
Sunshine was a little hamster with delicate sensibilities. One night, when the door to her cage was accidentally left open, Sunshine went on an adventure. But the world is a scary place for a little hamster all on her own. Based on a real story about a real hamster, Sunshine’s Night Out tells the tale of one critter’s adventure and her eventual return to the love and safety of her home. It’s the story of a girl and her hamster. (Found online here)This book is absolutely adorable! When we received it, I flipped through it, and the artwork is fantastic! I knew Olivia would love the pictures, and the story is so cute. My Kevin’s favorite part of the book though, is that you can narrate the story however you want. According to him, Sunshine talks as she plays.
I would suggest getting this book for young kids who love animals and love making their own adventures! It’s great to get their imaginations going since there are only a few words in this picture book, and they can make up the dialogue as they go! Definitely a good beginner book!
You can see the video of the entire book at this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8-rbozbWZs, and purchase the book online. And for older kids, you can download free coloring pages from this site.
