Check out this wonderful pick of children’s books on the theme of ‘Light and dark’
The Magic Sky by Lucy Richards (Egmont, PB, £7.99)
A charming picture book with beautifully-drawn illustrations. It tells the story of Rory, a little polar bear who looks forward with great excitement as he counts down the bedtimes until he can see the ‘magic sky’. This story will strike a chord with any child who has ever experienced the anticipation of counting down to a special event. This story had my Reception class transfixed, eager to see the magic sky – a few ‘ahhs’ even escaped when Rory finally did witness the Northern Lights. A CD also accompanies this book with the story, songs and games, which really brings the book to life!
