Review by: Linda Spence

Flashlight (2014)–written and illustrated by Lizi Boyd

In this wordless picture book, a young boy leaves his tent and begins to explore. The beam of his flashlight illuminates the inhabitants of the forest including owls, raccoons, deer, and mice. The tables are turned when he drops the flashlight and the animals turn the light on him. Throughout the book, the colors revealed by the flashlight’s beam are in bright contrast to the grays and blacks of the surrounding night. This book would be a great starting point for talking about what happens in the forest at night and can be fun for ALL ages even your youngest learners!
