    1 thought on “Switch on the Night”

    1. This is a wonderful children's book by Bradbury and illustrated by Caldecott winners. It deals with the common childhood fear of the dark. Rather than suggest all the imaginings of a fearful child are baseless and therefore easily dismissed, Bradbury awakens the senses to the wonders of the night so a child can find the beauty to counteract the fear. It's a lovely little story.

    2. The edition I own of this book is illustrated by Madeleine Gekiere, and the illustrations powerfully reflect the fear and anxiety felt by the young character. The rhythm perfectly capture motions and movements described.

    3. La oscuridad, temida y amada, amiga y rival, causa de grandes encierros y pesadillas.Esta historia ayudará a que el más pequeño de la casa pueda superar el miedo y amar la noche.Muy recomendado.

    4. Amo este cuento hermoso, que fue mio cuando era chica y que ahora es de mi hija. Lo hemos leido varias veces juntas antes de dormir.

    5. Most of Bradbury's novels deal with quite dark themes, but thankfully this book for children did not take up the same themes. The story is about a young boy who is terrified of the night, but who conquers his fear when he meets a young girl who teaches him that turning off the lights is just another way to turn on the night. Through his change in perspective the little boy is able to discover all that the night has to off - crickets, stars, and games with his fellow children. Bradbury's prose is [...]

    6. A young boy is afraid of the dark and must have all the lights in the house on if possible. One night, when everyone else is gone, he turns every light in the house on. Then a young girl knocks on the door and introduces herself as Dark. Dark takes the boy by the hand and gently introduces him to the night and proves it's nothing to be afraid of.

    7. A bedtime story as only Ray Bradbury could write. It's a good story for those among us who are afraid of the dark and it provides a unique perspective on what you can discover when you "Switch on the Night." The illustrations are a bit bizarre and surrealistic, but interesting nonetheless. Our girls liked this story, although they wonder why I won't let them play outside in the dark.

    8. A picture book about overcoming the fear of nighttime via a clever, typically Bradburian premise (don't switch off the lights, switch on the dark), with illustrations by the masterful Leo and Diane Dillon. I don't know if it works as a children's book or not, but as an RB fan I'm glad to have finally read it.

    9. A kids book by Ray Bradbury? Awesome. As a former outdoor educator and camp counselor, this book is perfect for prepping kids for night games or activities, or for those that have fears of the dark. Instead of switching off the light -- we switch ON the night!

    10. Excellent story. It's too bad Bradbury never did more children's books; his prose style is well suited to them. And the illustrations to this later edition are very good (though I would like to see the 1955 original someday). The Dillons' work here evokes both M.C. Escher and Chris Van Allsburg.

    11. I never knew that Ray Bradbury wrote a children's picture book. This is such a fun story. Full review on my blog. buildinglifelongreaderssp

    12. Miten pimeä nähdään toisin? Jos se laitetaan päälle ja näkyviin. Ei tyhjänä vaan täytenä tähtiä ja kuita ja varjojen muodokkaita hahmoja. Bradburyn tavoin haluan oppia ja opettaa, ettei pelko saa kaventaa elämää.

    13. A cute way to help a child get over his/her fear of the night and darkness. It opens up a whole new world of what the Night is like and makes you imagine a world without it.

    14. I just read this for the first time in maybe 20 years, and I think I loved it even more than when I was a kid. My parents really knew what they were doing with the books they gave me. Delightful.

    15. Sweet children's book, great nephew Coltin/Age 6 loved it!Now each night at bedtime, he states "Switch on the Night" when turning lights off :o)

    16. Se tarda unos minutos en leer pero deja unas cuantas ideas que espero todavía me ronden en la cabeza a la horas de transmitírselas a las próximas generaciones.

    17. I really enjoyed the concept of this book. One I will definately read to my kids as they get older and develop fears.
