The dark, love it or hate it? It can be somewhat of a divisive subject with children. I was never a fan of it and Rabbit Bright is the kind of book that I really could have done with when I was a child.
It’s time for bed and Rabbit Bright is almost ready to turn off the bed side light. But wait…where does the light go? Wanting to know more, Rabbit Bright sets off into the night on a flying bicycle to find out where the light can be found when it is not in his lamp…
This beautifully simple story combines scientific information in a read that is dazzlingly bright. A captivating explosion of neon and fluorescent colour bounces off the dark page backgrounds of each and every page. As Rabbit Bright discovers, light can be found everywhere. The sky is lit up by exploding fireworks, stars twinkle and the moon shines via the light of the sun. Below the ground, an underground train lights up its passage through the dark tunnels. And deeper still, in the darkest depths of the ocean, fantastic fish light up the dark with bioluminescence. Eyes twinkle, animals glow and natural phenomena all shine bright in this fun and informative read. And after a wonderful journey of exploring light, Rabbit Bright returns home to his bed where he can now sleep peacefully.
The book proclaims on the back that it is ‘perfect for calming bedtime worries’ and I would whole heartedly agree, it does exactly that. There is much joy to be found in the this brilliantly bright picture book.
