About Book

Daylight Moonlight is a visually engaging book that provides a unique way for children to learn about different habitats and the animals that can be found in them both during the day and at night. Patterson has painted 22 scenes total, in the forest, desert, underwater, seashore, wetlands, grasslands, mountains, public parks, and even in your own backyard. Each habitat is depicted in daylight and nighttime hours to compare the different wildlife. Children and adults alike will enjoy Patterson's work, which is both endearingly simple and impressively detailed. Each nuanced illustration was completed to perfection and proves the artist's equal passion for both art and wildlife. This book is a fun way to get children excited about nature.

About Author/Illustrator

Growing up in New Hampshire, Matt has always had a love for nature and art.  As far back as he can remember he has enjoyed drawing and painting wildlife. He pursued a degree in illustration and graduated from the Art Institute of Boston. Today his interest remain the same as they were when he was younger. He continues to paint and draw wildlife, working as a professional illustrator. Taking inspiration from nature, Matt's work allows him to share his interests with others. Since graduating in 2006, Matt has completed work in a variety of areas ranging from scientific to product illustration. Matt's main focus is and will always be wildlife art.

My Thoughts

Daylight/Moonlight is an informative look at wildlife and their habitats not just in the daytime but also at night.  You will get a look at some of the wildlife and their habits in the desert, forest, seashore, wetlands, grasslands, mountains, public parks and right in your backyard.  

This is a fun way for children ages 0-6 to read about nature.  The illustrations speak for themselves and writings tell the full story.  The artwork is very life like and pleasing to the eye.  I liked that in the back of the book the author has numbered and named the plants and the creatures of each individual page. 

I highly recommend this book to teachers, librarians, parents and caregivers for children ages 0-6.

I rated this book 5 out of 5.
