When a young child can't sleep one night, her dad suggests they go for a walk. They tiptoe through the silent house and head outside into the night.
Out on the street, they can see inside lit-up windows -- kids are having a pillow fight in one house, while a family has gathered for a party in another. Father and daughter pass restaurants and shops, then pause in a park to gaze up at the stars.
Sara O'Leary has captured a child's wonder as she explores her neighborhood and comes to the comforting realization that she belongs. Ellie Arscott's rich, illustrations perfectly complement the story.
