Under the Silvery Moon

Under the Silvery Moon by Colleen McKeown (Little Tiger Press, ISBN 9781845067571) introduces Key Stage 1 children to the fact that not all animals are awake during the day, but that some are nocturnal.

This is a gentle yet fun introduction to various aspects of the science curriculum, the main focus being QCA Unit 1d (Light and dark), with an emphasis on night animals. At the same time, children will get an insight into the various habitats of these animals and learn about different forms of light at night time.
