The Longest Night

Bauer, Marion Dane. The Longest Night. Holiday House. 2009. ISBN: 9780823420544.

The story was about a moose, crow, and fox trying to get the sun back because it is winter and they're tired of the cold. This little chickadee is tired of the cold too. The moose and fox say they can bring the sun back because they are big and strong. The crow says it can bring the sun back because it can fly better. But, the wind says they are not the right ones to awake the sun. The chickadee is really small but the wind says it was the right one to awaken the sun. The lesson is no matter how small you are, you can always do it. The illustrator really put his time in it because it was really detailed. It was with dark colors but it was still really cool. My favorite part was at the end when the wind said that the chickadee could awaken the sun. I definitely recommend this book to other kids. I would reccommend it to smaller kids because the chickadee was small and could still awaken the sun and to kids who are interested in nature.
