The House in the Night is here!

The new Caldecott award winner, The House in the Night, by Susan Marie Swanson & illustrated by Beth Krommes has been reprinted & is now here at your very own independent, locally-owned bookstore! This is a really beautiful book with luminous illustrations & a simple, lyrical text that is perfect for a new baby gift or as a read aloud, particularly for bedtime. There is a very classic feel to this book, akin to Virginia Burton's Little House or Margaret Wise Brown's Goodnight Moon that is very charming and lovely!
