Why does it get dark in the evening? Why is sleep important? And why do we celebrate certain nights? This book shines a light into the darkness and answers children’s questions about the night. With the help of flaps, children can go on a night-time discovery tour themselves: they discover stars, planets and moons, learn which animals are rustling in the bushes after sunset and what happens in the city at night.

About the Series

The WWW series stands out for its playful, enticing way of conveying just the information that kids want to know. Centered on who-what-how questions, the titles in the series explore subjects of great interest to young children. The thousands of questions children ask daily are answered by means of interactive elements, engaging illustrations, and age-appropriate texts. Because the lively illustrations convey so much, the books hold children's interest even without an adult to read the clear, friendly texts. WWW is ideally suited for preschool and kindergarten ages, for children 4 to 7 years old.

The Author

Susanne Gernhäuser studied German and history in Stuttgart, where she worked at a historical institute, published articles and contributed articles to textbooks while still a student. She currently edits scholarly series.

The Illustrator

Susanne Szesny was born in 1965. She studied visual communication in Münster and received a diploma in design. After her studies, she worked freelance as an illustrator of games books, board books and picture books. In her opinion, a book should transport an inner value (a message, a teaching) and be a source of inspiration for children and adults equally. With her pictures she tries to build a bridge between the emotional worlds of children and adults.
