The Game of Light
by Hervé Tullet

This clever interactive board book from Hervé Tullet (Press Here) will quickly become part of your child’s bedtime ritual. Just add a flashlight to turn every night (or any dark room) into your family’s own private fireworks display.

In the daylight, you see the author-artist’s trademark pastel colors and whimsical shapes. But in the dark, when you shine a light through the die-cut openings in the pages, your child will see a sun, a boat floating on rolling waves, flowers that “bloom on the ceiling” and fish that “swim across the walls.” The last page features a shooting star that “leads you to sleep.” The thick board book pages allow little hands to flip the pages over and over again.

If your child is afraid of the dark, this entertaining book may just be the cure. And every child will look forward to bedtime with this invitation to a nightly spectacle.
